Updating windows update agent wsus
It regularly polls an update location on a web server or folder share to get the newest patches or updates.
This works great, but has some drawbacks if you want to deploy more complex updates, as creating the DUA script files requires quite a bit of development and test effort .
This script will completely reset the Windows Update client settings.
It has been tested on Windows 7, 8, 10, and Server 2012 R2.
The WSUS server syncs with Windows Update to get all available updates, which are then stored on the WSUS server and not immediately pushed onto the company’s computers.
The updates can be tested by an administrator against the company-specific configurations to avoid problems on production machines.
Because of some limitations of the cmdlets available in Power Shell, this script calls some legacy utilities (sc.exe, netsh.exe, wusa.exe, etc). Once you confirm, the script will run and reset Windows Update client.
The tool configures the registry keys, settings and services to default values.
While one could try restarting the system, re-initiating the Windows Update service, rolling back previous updates if possible, troubleshooting Windows Update, run the Windows Update Troubleshooter, it may not always work.Microsoft’s solution was SUS (System Update Services) or, as it later was renamed, WSUS.WSUS works as a proxy server between the original Microsoft Windows Update back-end and client computers in a company.There are already a lot of blog posts and articles on DUA to be recommended as a great resource on this topic.This is why I will not go into depth with DUA and focus on WSUS in this post.
