I have installed a new server with Server 2012 Standard 64-bit. When I add the role for WSUS everything look fine until after 4pm EST then I am getting a Critical Event "The application (Windows Server Update Services, from vendor Microsoft) was hard-blocked and raised the following: Windows Server Update Services is incompatible with this version of Windows. For more information, contact Microsoft." After I get the error, the server removes the WSUS role.
I would appreciate any help that anyone can give me?
Does your machine meet the hardware requirements?
The minimum hardware configuration for WSUS is:
- Processor: 1.4 gigahertz (GHz) x64 processor (2 Ghz or faster is recommended)
- Memory: WSUS requires an additional 1.5 GB of RAM - above and beyond what is required by Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview or Windows Server 2012.
- Available disk space: 10 GB (40 GB or greater is recommended)
- Network adapter: 100 megabits per second (Mbps) or greater
