  • Question

  • Hi

    we have installed windows 2008 Upstream server to Windows 2012 WSUS server and now they are able to sync the updates and but some updates are not able to download so what could be the issue.

    whether this design is supported please confirm.

    Have you installed KB2734608 on the upstream server?

    whether this design is supported please confirm.

    It is *NOT* supported.. but it *WILL* work if KB2734608 is installed on the WSUS v3 server.

  • Hello,

    have you set the main server to download all updates or only to download assigned updates?

    Keep in mind that there is a dedicated WSUS forum http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/home?forum=winserverwsus

  • Hi 

    we had selected the desired updates only not all.

  • Hello,

    and even they are not available on the downstream server? Then please ask in the WSUS forum, as that one is dedicated for this problem.
