  • Hi RubySA,

    1. Are you talking about KB3159706 on the WSUS server. If yes, then what is the current situation of your WSUS server now, is it installed the KB and do manual steps, could you open the WSUS console, what database do you use for WSUS server?

    2. If the WSUS works well now, while WSUS clients do not show up in the WSUS console, please try reset windows update components and reset SusClientID:

    Reset SusClientID:

    1). In cmd, net stop wuauserv

    2). Delete the value in registry key " SusClientId " and "SusClientIDValidation" locates in:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate

    3). In cmd, net start wuauserv
         wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow

    Reset windows update components:
