Windows 10 1607 - unable to get updates from WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'll try to provide as much information as I can ...

    • Server 2012R2 WSUS ver. 6.3.9600.18228
    • KB3095113 installed April 2016
    • Windows 10 updates downloaded Oct 2016 (so I'm assuming the updates have been downloaded correctly)
    • KB3159706 installed yesterday - post install steps followed
    • gpo sets 'Download' mode to 'Bypass' (in Delivery Optimisation)

    I've setup a new Windows 10 Pro (1607) machine, domain joined, in correct OU.

    It reports to WSUS. But the update client hangs. Looking at the application log the WU client crashes.

    I've followed this https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/mniehaus/2016/08/16/windows-10-delivery-optimization-and-wsus-take-2/ and looking at the comments I'm not alone.

    I'm not sure what to do next?

  • Hi jmb72,

    Based on my understanding, win10 1607 unable to update from WSUS server. If my understanding is correct, then, you may manually install the latest CU for win10 1607, and after then, win10 may be able to download updates from WSUS server:


    According to pervious experience, win10 1607 without any updates doesn't work well with WSUS server, while after installing CU manually, it could download updates from WSUS server. Since after installing the latest CU, we do not need to install the pervious ones, so I would suggest you install the latest one.

    Besides, after installing the KB 3095113 and KB3159706, the version is .18324, please restart the WSUS role, check if it will change to the correct version.

    Best Regards,
