Sbs 2016 wsus not updating clients

Rated 3.86/5 based on 571 customer reviews

Windows update kept giving error 80072EFD – network connectivity message. The referenced network connection, firewall, AV, host file and Internet security trusted site fixes, but none of those worked.Quick search on Google found a site that had the exact same issue, although not quite the same failure way.After you set the switch to Enabled, type the WSUS Server address in the two fields like as shown in the figure below.Note: If the Configure Automatic Updates policy is disabled, then this policy is not applicable.

Another necessary policy in which you declare WSUS Server to be detected by clients.

The others didn’t appear to have any duplicate SID problems but having them appear in the WSUS administration webpage was still a challenge.

Looking around the web, I found a variety of suggestions to fix the problem; most of them involved changing the registry.

Running that on the clients that failed to show up in WSUS worked every single time and it even worked on computers that weren’t on the same domain as the WSUS server. Chrissy is a Cloud and Datacenter Management & Data Platform MVP who has worked in IT for over 20 years.
