  • Hello,

     

    Glad to help.

    WSUS could use NAS as its storage location. If there are errors, please check the following settings.

     

    1. Registry

     

    Navigate to HKLM > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Services > LanmanServer > Shares

    Check the value of WsusContent and UpdateServicesPackages, the path should be

    "Path=\\YourPath\Update Services\WsusContent" and

    "Path=\\YourPath\Update Services\UpdateServicesPackages"

     

     

    1. IIS
       

    Open IIS Manager, expand Sites, find site with Content folder. Right-click Conent, chooseManage virtual directory > Advanced Settings.

    Check the Physical Path, the leading backslashes often lost.

    Add Physical Path Credentials, I choose Domain Admin in my lab.

     

     

    1. Sharing permission
       

    Check the permission of the Sharing folder. I add Everyone to share with and give the Read/Write permission in my lab.

     

    After checking above setting, restart the WSUS server and check if it works.

     

    Hope my answer could help you and look forward to your feedback.

     

    Best Regards,

    Ray Jia

  • How 'full' was your hard drive on the server? My WSUS_Content folder is less than 100GB with a ton of products selected (7, 10, server 2012, 2012R2, Office 2013, Exchange 2013, etc).

    Are you performing the proper WSUS maintenance including but not limited to running the Server Cleanup Wizard (SCW), declining superseded updates, running the SQL Indexing script, etc.?

    Doing the proper maintenance will drop the amount of WSUS Content that stays on your system dramatically.
