Cannot Synchronize New/Additional Products in WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone. I inherited our WSUS installation from someone who inherited it from another team in our department, and the individuals who initially set everything up are no longer with the company. I have most of the basics of just keeping things running down, but I noticed something very strange that our CTO has also noticed because he is not receiving all of his updates as one of the very few individuals we have on Windows 8.1. 

    Under the Products tab in Products and Classifications, I cannot get Windows 8.1 or any other product to remain checked to synchronize updates. It will also not keep any products unchecked for me, such as Windows XP. I am stuck with the configuration someone else put in place. Windows 7 and 8 are checked, so

    We are running Windows Server 2012 and while I am a local admin on the server so I can run the Server Cleanup Wizard, I am not a domain admin. Our server sys admins do not have any suggestions for me and have not been tasked with managing WSUS at all.

    Please let me know if I can provide any additional information that will be helpful to pinpoint the problem.

    Thank you.

  • Yes, we do. System Center 2012.

    And now you know why you cannot make configuration changes from the WSUS console! :-)

    Do you have System Center Configuration Manager?
