Installation Prerequisites: Server 2003 SP2 are supported.Specific things must happen on Windows Small Business Server.CADCS001 did not show the Windows Updates system tray icon at all, but WSUS continued to show that it had 131 pending updates.

Each server was set up from scratch and Windows was installed manually on each of them (i.e.

they were not cloned from each other or from any other VM).

I have compared the output from the Windows file on CADCS001 with that from CADCS002 and the only differences aside from the timestamps and the Call ID and client Id strings are the following lines: CADCS001: But for some reason one of the servers is insisting that there are no updates available from WSUS. The problem seems to have been due to a corruption in the \Windows\Software Distribution folder.

The following steps resolved the issue: This could be several things.

Packages delivered from WSUS to the update client are received using BITS over HTTP by default.

Implementing HTTPS requires a certificate that is trusted by your client to be attached to the WSUS “web site,” which we will get to later.

I've tried installing the "System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB947821)", which installs correctly but then reports no errors: ================================= Checking System Update Readiness.

We have around 30 servers and 150 client PCs and as far as I can tell all of them seem to be downloading and installing approved updates.

Both servers are in the same OU in Active Directory, have the same applied GPOs (and are successfully applying those GPOs), and both are in the same container on the WSUS console.
