  • Question

    When installing WSUS the post configuration wizard hangs at : Connecting to Upstream Server.

    Nothing gets blocked in firewall and WSUS was working on previous vm.

  • Hi,

    As this query is related to WSUS, I will move the thread into WSUS forum where you would get more efficient support.

    Best Regards,

    Amy

    If you are patient and leave it for 48 hours, does it finish connecting or throw an error? I say 48 hours to exaggerate the length of time needed, but to demonstrate that sometimes it takes a VERY long time.

  • I try and wait for about 24 hours, nothing happened. Then I decided to install Win srv 2012 R2. Then I contacted wsus upstream server in 5 minutes.

    Here must be a bug in Win srv 2016.

  • Hi Elton

    This was when connecting to upstream server (microsoft)

    The iso was the latest from VLSC.

    SW_DVD9_Win_Svr_STD_Core_and_DataCtr_Core_2016_64Bit_English_-3_MLF_X21-30350

    The OS Windows Server 2016 Standard

  • I am having the same issue.  I am running a WSUS server as a VM in a Hyper-V clustered array.  OS is Server 2016 Standard off of an ISO of datacenter.  I selected to synchronize the updates with Microsoft Update.  I haven't waited 48 hours, but I will do so and report back.  Kinda new at this.  Thanks for the assistance.

    UPDATE:  Everything seemed to work out.  I had tried a number of times to make the server work and now I think the issue was Symantec SEP was enabled.  It's likely that was the culprit but I cannot confirm that.
