the files for this update have not yet been downloaded - Microsoft RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have configured WSUS server on our environment for approving and distributing updates within the organization.  We have around 70 Windows Client PC (windows 10 & windows 7) and around 6 servers (windows 2008 R2 & windows 2012 R2). I have configured my WSUS server to download the updates locally and distribute among the clients. I have approved all critical and security updates for all the clients But most of the updates still showing as 'the files for this update have not yet been downloaded' . Its been more than 3 days since i configured the server and i can see the download status haven't changed at all. I have done wsusutilities reset as well but to no avail.

  • Hi,

    >>Its been more than 3 days since i configured the server and i can see the download status haven't changed at all.

     

    Do you mean the download status still shows some files are downloading ?

    Is there any error related to 'windows server update serivces' under "Application" in event viewer ?

    Could you please post a screenshot here ?

    Is there any free space of that drive which storing update files under WSUS content folder ?

     

    If these files were not downloaded successfully , that message "the files for this update have not yet been download" is a normal information .

     

    In addition , please check the following article if it is a 2012R2 WSUS server :
