WSUS Client computers are installing updates with a higher than 10 percent failure rate. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    On our WSUS only one PC is failing to install 26 updates other PC has been successfully updated.

    Event log says "ID= 13001; Src= Windows Server Update Services; User= ; Catg= Clients ; D/T= 11/28/2014 08:43:19; EventDesc= Client computers are installing updates with a higher than 10 percent failure rate. This should be monitored."

    When I check the client PC no updates are showing on the PC. When I open report for the PC in the WSUS console, status is showing failed on 26 updates.

    When I click on the failed "No events are available. This may be because the client has not yet sent the event or the events have been purged from the server. Please refer to %WINDIR%\WindowsUpdate.log on wks01-win7.xxx.com for details."

    Looks to me like the WUAgent is updated on this PC but the latest update is not applied to the WSUS server. Install KB2938066.

    Okay... so... what's in the WindowsUpdate.log?
