WSUS clients not updating RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We have a WSUS server running on Server 2012 R2 which has been fine for a couple of years.

    We create computer groups on a 6 weekly basis and then add computers to the group in a scheduled manner to control updates.

    Updates are approved for install to these computer groups.

    I can see in the WSUS console the computers added and if I click a report on any of them I can see updates are required and are set to Install.

    However none of the clients are updating!  If I look in the WindowsUpdate log on a client there are no errors but it states there are no updates to found.

    This was all working fine for the last patch group but it is now not working at all this week.

    I have tried running wuauclt /detectnow  and all other relevant switches to reset the client but it is sill not pulling any updates to the clients.

    What else can I try?  Has anyone else seen this?
