Wsus not updating status report

This tool downloads all the patches as per your selection and stores in a folder, which will contain an executable to update any PC () offline.

Not only that before updating it also detects that what already had been updated and more of it, the tool downloads updates in incremental ways, so that every time the folder will keep on growing to catch up the new updates.

KB3159706 introduces this functionality to WSUS for /R2, such that it can now natively decrypt this content.

Sometimes the WSUS console, just doesn’t give you the info you need, or it doesn’t provide it in a format you want. This query can be used in multiple ways to show the update status of a computer, computers or computer in a computer target.

Patch compliance success rate is depends mainly on heath of your SCCM clients and some times things may go wrong even though sccm client is healthy (able to receive applications/packages and performing inventory except patches).If you do not disable automatic updates (Via GPO) leaving the door open for the WUA to do things on its own outside the control of Config Mgr including installing any updates approved directly in WSUS (including new versions of the agent itself which are automatically approved) and rebooting systems which have a pending reboot.Neither of these is desirable in a Config Mgr managed environment and thus the recommendation for disabling automatic updates.What’s next in my post is nothing special that most of smart admins might not been knowing about, but I thought to make a step by step guide over WSUS from the resources already available over internet.Offline updates solution: Autopatcher: When you talk about updating few PCs just built up and installed, then the best tool that strikes me is Autopatcher.
