  • Hi Reno Mardo,

    For those updates reported as "failed", we need to check the detailed reason why the update is failed to be install on the clients.

    Do you have a lot of updates that failed to be install on clients?

    Best Regards,

    Anne

  • hi, how to check. when i use the built-in reporter, it only shows the list of updates, failed or not.

    how to get more information on the reason without going to each PC?

  • since we have thousands of clients, no way to individually check why the updates failed.

    the WSUS is a Microsoft product so i don't see why it can't get more information from another Microsoft product. the reports are useless too as it only consolidates what is already shown on the console.

    so no i haven't found an answer yet.
