WSUS Driver's missing? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi @all,

    i am using a W2012R2 Server with Role WSUS installed.

    I have downloaded "all" Updates for "all" classifications and products.

    Now i tried on my Windows 8.1 Client and i see, that "Check for updates by you system administrator" i see now new updates.

    when i switch to "check online for updates from Microsoft Update" it founds 4 optional updates (3 drivers)

    how can it be, or is there any option what i can forgot in my WSUS?

    Here is my Reg-File i am using actually for testing

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "AcceptTrustedPublisherCerts"=dword:00000001
    "ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000001
    "TargetGroup"="Workstations"
    "TargetGroupEnabled"=dword:00000000
    "WUServer"="http://s002:8530"
    "WUStatusServer"="http://s002:8530"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "DetectionFrequencyEnabled"=dword:00000001
    "IncludeRecommendedUpdates"=dword:00000001
    "UseWUServer"=dword:00000001
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000003
    "DetectionFrequency"=dword:00000001

    Not all updates available via WU/MU are available via WSUS.

    Most likely the simple answer is the correct answer in this case.

  • on your WSUS, have you enabled the "Drivers" Classification?

  • Hi,

    After configuring WSUS server, did you perform a synchronization?

    I guess it shouldn't be a problem now since it has been two days.

    Run wuauclt /detectnow on the client, and check the computer report in WSUS server.
