Win server 2016 update issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since April 2019, Downloading and installing windows updates on servers with win server 2016 are too slow and for some servers is stuck checking or downloading updates, even the manual update hangs copying the files to the update cache...

    Is there any way to find out the Microsoft server that windows trying to download updates from? or may be any way to run windows update in verbose mode via command line to find out why the windows update does not have any progress?

    I tried GET-Windows update command but had other issue with this....

  • Is there any way to find out the Microsoft server that windows trying to download updates from? 

    To connect to Microsoft Update for updates, you may be accessing the following Internet locations:

       http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
       http://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
       https://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
       http://*.update.microsoft.com
       https://*.update.microsoft.com
       http://*.windowsupdate.com
       http://download.windowsupdate.com
       https://download.microsoft.com
       http://*.download.windowsupdate.com
       http://wustat.windows.com
       http://ntservicepack.microsoft.com
       http://go.microsoft.com
       http://dl.delivery.mp.microsoft.com
       https://dl.delivery.mp.microsoft.com
       

    or may be any way to run windows update in verbose mode via command line to find out why the windows update does not have any progress?

    Part of Windows Update control can be done through Windows Powershell or Command Prompt. For reference, the following article provides some introductions to this: "How to run Windows Updates from Command Line in Windows 10".

    In addition, I recommend that you check the steps mentioned in "Fix Windows Update errors" to determine if there is a specific error message.
