  • Hi. I have one server with Windows Server 2016 Standard x64 OS (build: 14393.3085).

    Installed server roles: Windows Server Update Services, and IIS (for the WSUS). This is a WSUS server.

    When i approving new updates in WSUS management console (MMC), or reclassify the new computers to the right category, the MMC often freezing. The movement of the mouse becomes fragmented, and after all, the MMC console window freezes.

    After this error, the MMC console not answering, i can not close the MMC window, only i can kill the whole MMC console from the task manager.

    I was set the WSUSPool private memory limit to 4,8 GB, but the problem was not solved.

    All Windows Server 2016 updates are installed.

    Server type: DELL poweredge T20 with 16 GB RAM, Xeon E3-1225 v3, etc.

    Installed programs: VNC Server, and Google Chrome.

    What can i do? Please help me.

  • Have you ever clean the WSUS server before?

    If not, I guess you might need to do it.

  • Hi. I had not clean the WSUS before, because i was installed the OS since 2 months ago. I think, it is not necessary yet.

    With the installer disc i was do a DISM repair. (dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /source:WIM:E:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess) 

    It seems, it the problem solved.

    Thank you for help.

  • Unfortunately the problem has returned. Do you have any idea what can cause?
    The sfc/scannow command has not found error. 

    I will try the built-in cleanup process from the WSUS MMC.

    2 months? I think you should clean, the moment WSUS sync for updates there will be thousand and thousands of update that will sync to the DB. It depends to the number of OSes, products and other option you have selected.
