Replica servers showing all Approved updates as 'Unapproved' RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi WSUS Experts,

        In our environment we suffer very often from the following problem - donwstream servers after synchronization show all Approved updates from the upstream server (over 3100) as Unapproved. Hence the files are not on the downstream server. Do oyu have any clue on how to fix/approach this problem?

  •  Hi, yes of course - it is a Replica server :-)

    Sorry, had to ask! 

    • Can you give some more insight into the versions involved?
    • Are both upstream/downstream patched to same level?
    • Also, is it just a single downstream?
    • If there are others are they working?
    • Did that downstream ever work correctly?
    • Are there any firewalls in place?
    • Any error messages in the Windows event logs?
    •  Any errors in softwaredistribution.log?
    • Are clients receiving updates from the upstream server ok?

  • Hey Dariusz,

    obvious question first, but is the downstream server actually configured as a replica? By default downstream servers are configured in autonomous mode
