WSUS Not Reporting Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In WSUS suddenly it shows as Not Reporting, IP Address is Unknown, OS as Windows 0.0 as per below snap,

    Checked the GPO, IIS, Uninstalled Latest Updates, done the Post installation.

    Where as Event ID : 3  "WebHost Failed to process the Request" Verified the services and DNS Server Services also checked the Client Communication Between the WSUS and Client.

    Any other missed possibilities.

  • Hello,

    Whether the WSUS is new configured? Would you please run command 

    wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

    on one of your client and check the result.

    Please look into the windowsupdate.log and check is there any error message.

  • Are you using my WSUS Maintenance script? My script fixes issues like this:

    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 Shrink your WSUSContent folder's size by declining superseded updates.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.
