WSUS keeps redownloading specific updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I am experiencing a problem on all 4 of my WSUS installations.

    After every synchronization, WSUS is trying to download 2,871.52 MB worth of updates. This number is exactly the same on all 4 servers.

    (WSUS message)
    Download Status
    Updates needing files: 3
    Donwloaded xx.xx MB of 2,817.52 MB


    Eventually, it gets downloaded and it looks like this:

    Download Status
    Updates needing files: 3
    Donwloaded 2,817.52 MB of 2,817.52 MB


    But with the next synchronization, it starts all over again.

    I guess the download is failing for some reason. How can I reveal what exactly is failing so I can decline the update?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Berry,
      

    It is a pleasure to answer your question.
      
    I found a thread, which is similar to the problem you are facing: WSUS Downloads all files again and againThe solution mentioned in it:
      

    1. Re-index the susdb: Re-index the WSUS Database.
    2. Reset wsus via the wsusutil reset command.
          

    Reply back with the results would be happy to help.
