WSUS server not seeing Server 2012 machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have WSUS 3.2.7600.226 running on a Windows Server 2003 R2 machine, which has been working fine with our wide range of client computers. We recently added our first 4 Server 2012 machines to our domain. Although they show up in browse lists across the network, WSUS doesn't "see" them at all. They don't show up anywhere in the Computers list, and a search for any of them comes up empty.

    If I apply our default GPO to these servers, they are required to use the WSUS as their update server. That causes them to get no updates.

    What can I do to make these clients show up? Thanks in advance.

    Install KB2734608 to the WSUS server (and remote consoles).

  • Hi,

    Have you installed KB2828185? If no, please try to install it on the WSUS server.

    For detailed information, please refer to the link below,

    If issue persists, please post the windowsupdate.log of the client here. It may give some hints.

    Best Regards.

    To get communication from W8/WS2012 clients, only KB2734608 is required.

    KB2828185 provides alternate compression methodologies for disconnected scenarios, and is not required to merely patch W8/WS2012 systems.
