    we are facing WSUS post installation  not functioning windows 2012,

    Error :-

      

    PS C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools> .\wsusutil.exe postinstall CONTENT_DIR=E:\Wsus SQL_INSTANCE_NAME=<>
    Log file is located at C:\Users\2000094\AppData\Local\Temp\tmpC771.tmp

  • Hello,

    Can you please tell some more information?

    Have you installed WSUS ever before?

    For database, did you use windows internal database or SQL server?

    I suspect those two statements are highly related, most notably that you've tried to install WSUS on a Domain Controller. This forum is full of conversations over the past two years of what is required to install WSUS on a WS2012 Domain Controller.
