WSUS Console RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In Windows Update Services Console, there is this "Last Status Report" vs "Last Contact" fields under Computers.

    The two fields are showing different date/time.


    Server A

    Last status report: Not yet reported but Last Contact: 5/1/2018

    Server B

    Last status report: 4/10/2016 but Last Contact: 15/1/2018

    Is there a definition of what different between the two?

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    "Last contacted" means  the client contacts the WSUS server for content downloading or detection or selfupdate .
    "Last status report" means the client executed  calls of the ReportingWebService .

    I'd suggest you first check the setting of GPO "Specify intranet Microsoft Update service location" , and both "set the intranet update service for detecting updates" and "set intranet statistics server " would be same WSUS server in your case .

    If these settings are correct , I'd suggest you manually execute "check for updates " and then check windows update log to see if there is any clue .

    Best Regards,
