Stuck in Connection Error Cycle RRS feed

  • Question

  • Server 2012R2 Standard

    Server is also DC

    WSUS stopped working. When opening, I get Error: Connection Error. In the past I just clicked on "Reset Server Node". This fails and returns to Error state.

    I checked Services and found that WSUS Service was not running. I changed to Automatic (Delayed Start). Even if I manually Start the service, the subsequent open of WSUS is Error. After reboot, the service does not start.

    Any idea what is going on? This WSUS service has been running on the server for years!

  • Hi JohnLenz,

    Check "installed updates" in the WSUS server, check if you have installed KB3159706, if yes, we need to do manual steps to finish the installation, see detailed information in the KB:


    Best Regards,
