WSUS Patch Approval and Client Detection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to demonstrate patch approval on server and installation on client machine.

    After approving the patch on WSUS server, I go to client machine, run wuauclt /detectnow. But the client doesn't find the updates immediately. But the client can detect the approved update after a few hours/days. How can I reduce this delay?

  • Hi,

    When you run the wuauclt /detectnow task, you need to wait for the completion of the detection event.

    Typically this could take a couple of minutes, but on a healthy, fully patched system, it may complete in a matter of seconds.
