WUSU not working on vmware environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we have a requirement for windows patching in a Vmware environment. I've created a windows 2012 64 bit server and installed the WSUS role and am using the windows internal DB.Installing the role and other options like synchronize with Window update was pretty simple. I ad noticed .NET 3.5 was not installed and when I try to install it now, I get the do you want to specify an alternate path ...

    In AD > Active directory users and computes > I've created a new OU called WSUS and added a test vm to the OU

    In GPO > under WSUS OU > create a GPO and have enabled auto update , added http://WSUShost:8530.domain.com

    Right clicked on GPO for the WSUS OU and enabled the policy

    Then I did gpresult /r  but I could not see the server under computer settings

    In the test server, I applied the GPO > gpupdate /force and also issued wuauclt.exe /detectnow

    On the WSUS server, created a group called WSUS and chose GPO for updates.

    Moved the test server from unassigned to WSUS group > approved windows 2008 updates and issued wuauclt.exe /reportnow /detectnow  on test server

    Registry settings are

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]

    'TargetGroup"="ALL COMPUTERS"

    "WUServer"="http://wsuspw001:8530.domain.com"

    "WUStatusServer"="http://wsuspw001:8530.domain.com"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]

    "EnableFeaturedSoftware"=dword:00000003

    "NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000

    "AUOptions"=dword:00000000

    "ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000

    "ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003

    "UseWUServer"=dword:00000001"

    When I try to run the update, I get the following error

    I tried to install the server diag, but got this error " do you need to specify ..."

    and on client diag,

    on the client, I can check updates online and install them from windows update, but that defeats the purpose of WSUS pushing updates

    I appreciate help and advise. Thanks

    First: http://wsushost:8530
    Not more.

    Right clicked on GPO for the WSUS OU and enabled the policy

    Did you restart the Client/Server in this OU?

    In the test server, I applied the GPO > gpupdate /force*and also issued***wuauclt.exe /detectnow

    On the WSUS server, created a group called WSUS and chose GPO for updates.

    Moved the test server from unassigned to WSUS group > approved windows 2008 updates and issued*wuauclt.exe /reportnow /detectnow *on test server

    Registry settings are

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]

    'TargetGroup"="ALL COMPUTERS"

    If you want to move the Clients/Server manually, you have to remove
    this Settings with Target Group.

    When I try to run the update, I get the following error

    <http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/getfile/431910>

    On this Server/Client open a administrative Commandline.

    net stop wuauserv
    rd /s /q %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
    net start wuauserv
    wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow
    wuauclt /detectnow

    on the client, I can check updates online and install them from windows update, but that defeats the purpose of WSUS pushing updates

    Pls show us a ipconfig /all from WSUS and from the target
    Client/Server.
