  • I had to start the windows firewall services. Then i used above command. 

    But, The windows update is not happening as expected. its very slow. Server 2012 and 2008 downloads the update from same WSUS server faster. 

    Any help you can do on slowness. 

    Windowsupdate.log really a frustrating in OS 2016
