  • Set BITS to use Foreground mode

    $WSUSConfiguration = (Get-WsusServer).GetConfiguration()
    $WSUSConfiguration.BitsDownloadPriorityForeground = $True
    $WSUSConfiguration.Save()

    Have a look at Downloadstatus:

    Files are downloading?

  • Hi,
      

    Please check the Windows Advanced Firewall configuration on the server, or if the third-party firewall is blocking WSUS work. Or more directly, please turn off the firewall on the WSUS server. If the content download is restored, please turn the firewall back on and start troubleshooting the firewall configuration.
      

    Hope the above can help you.

  • Hi,
     

    If Adam and Winfried suggestion didn’t help you, please consider the method mentioned in this article, using the following steps to reset the WSUS content repository:
      

    1. Close any open WSUS consoles.
    2. Go to Administrative Tools – Services and STOP the Update Services service.
    3. In Windows Explorer browse to the WSUSContent folder (typically C:\WSUS\WSUSContent)
    4. Delete ALL the files and folders in the WSUSContent folder.
    5. Go to Administrative Tools – Services and START the Update Services service.
    6. Open a command prompt and navigate to the folder: C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools.
    7. Run the command WSUSUtil.exe RESET
        

      As soon as you run the WSUSUtil.exe reset command, this command takes a while to complete.  Unfortunately there is no progress bar or message which lets you know the reset has completed.  A handy trick is to monitor the Windows Internal Database SQL Instance for WSUS, this is busy with high CPU activity as it checks every update in the SQL database against the files in the WsusContent folder.  As soon as the SQL activity dies down you know the command has completed.
       

      After this perform another sync.  You will then notice the WSUS Server begin to download the updates by verifying the WSUSContent directory growing.
       

      lease not the WSUSContent takes a long time to download and will most likely pause consistently through the download process.  As soon as you verify the content size is growing, log off the server and leave it for 24 hours.
        

    Reply back with the results would be happy to help.

    Yic
