Wsus 3 clients not updating

Rated 3.81/5 based on 653 customer reviews

I have run the wuauclt /reportnow and wuauclt /detectnow. I have run the cleanup wizard to deny and remove all of the superseded updates.I have verified that the machines are in the correct groups in AD and in WSUS.All these servers are fresh installs and they are in an OU that prevents them from restarting themselves after an update install and I am the only one who manually restarts them.Since they have been installed they have gotten 0 updates.We are converting more and more of our servers from 2012 to 2016 which means this is more and more of a problem as NONE of them will get updates from WSUS...As much as I don't want to, I am going to have to call Microsoft...I have a hard time believing that there are 0 applicable updates for a fresh Windows Server 2016 install.I have ensured that BITS and the Windows Update services are running.

Visit Stack Exchange We have a WSUS server running on Windows Server 2016.WSUS is synchronizing correctly according to the logs but clients aren't pulling down updates.Everything was working fine on the old WSUS server but not on the new one.It is definitely a WSUS server problem; if I go into the registry and change it back to Microsofts server it finds updates. Tried installing a 2nd 2016 WSUS server, same problem, only with the 2016 servers. I put a 2016 test server all by itself in an OU with blocked inheritance.Does anyone have any idea what might be causing the problem and how to fix it? I even tried installing 2019 server (though I don't think there are any differences...). The only GPO I linked was the WSUS server setting which pointed to the 2019 server. There isn't even a virus scanner or firewall configured on the test 2016 server, they are even on the same segment.
