  • WSUS will download content according to your settings (products, classifications, languages, express-installation-files), and, the settings on any down-stream-servers (DSS) running in autonomous mode.

    DSS will request your up-stream-server (USS) perform the content download, and the DSS then obtains the content from your USS.


    So, examine the settings on your USS, and any/all DSS.
