SBS 2011 Server WSUS updater broken RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have a customer where the SBS2011 WSUS Updater is not functional. Logs had been showing success, but apparent when Dell Server Support folks went looking for something that came as an update, it wasn't there. Did update manually and hundreds of them came in.

    They sent us a bulletin to in-install WSUS and re-install it. Got it taken out, but it will not re-install. After 5 hours, their level 3 engineer threw his hand up and declared it "broken".

    I see lots in Tech-Net about the issue but not many fixes...

    Any suggestions welcome!

  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that update did not automatically shown, and after manually update installing, many update shows.

    >They sent us a bulletin to in-install WSUS and re-install it. Got it taken out, but it will not re-install.
    So, current now, WSUS is failed to be re-installed.

    Please reference section “To manually recover Windows Server Update Services” in below link and confirm that if you can successfully recover WSUS:
