  • Hi Felipe Caram Rocha,

    On the clients, please do the following things, then check for update again to check the result:

    1. Run windows updates troubleshooter;

    2. Reset windows update components:


    3. Run sfc /scannow on the clients;

    4. On the WSUS server, please check if the Server 2016 is fully patched, also run Server Cleanup Wizard on the WSUS server.

    Best Regards,

  • I did all this, but the error continues, it even communicates with wsus once a day, but at the time of installing it presents the same error too.

  • My script fixes tons of issues. Run it and then run the following script on the client. After have been run, check for updates again.

    Have a peek at my Adamj Clean-WSUS script. It is the last WSUS Script you will ever need.


    What it does:

    1. Remove all Drivers from the WSUS Database.
    2. Shrink your WSUSContent folder's size by declining superseded updates.
    3. Remove declined updates from the WSUS Database.
    4. Clean out all the synchronization logs that have built up over time (configurable, with the default keeping the last 14 days of logs).
    5. Compress Update Revisions.
    6. Remove Obsolete Updates.
    7. Computer Object Cleanup (configurable, with the default of deleting computer objects that have not synced within 30 days).
    8. Application Pool Memory Configuration to display the current private memory limit and easily increase it by any configurable amount.
    9. Run the Recommended SQL database Maintenance script on the actual SQL database.
    10. Run the Server Cleanup Wizard.

    It will email the report out to you or save it to a file, or both.

    Although the script is lengthy, it has been made to be super easy to setup and use. There are some prerequisites and instructions at the top of the script. After installing the prerequisites and configuring the variables for your environment, simply run:

    .\Clean-WSUS.ps1 -FirstRun

    and then

    .\Clean-WSUS.ps1 -InstallTask

    If you wish to view or increase the Application Pool Memory Configuration, you must run it with the required switch. See Get-Help .\Clean-WSUS.ps1 -Examples

    If you're having trouble, there's also a -HelpMe option that will create a log so you can send it to me for support.

    Run this on the client.
