Question re: client/server communication RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know of the command wuauclt /reportnow /detectnow which is run from the client to prompt a status update to the server. 

    Is there also a way to prompt a client status report from the server e.g. is there a command I can run from the WSUS server that will force a particular client to report status?

  • Hi techrep,

    No, there's no command on WSUS server side to force clients to report. It is the client windows update agent's behavior to report, WSUS server can't interrupt it.

    Best Regards,
