Hyper-V Server2012R2 std - WSUS role

Thai is the VM with WSUS role. All other servers and windows clients are reporting status in to this server. However, this server update client reports failure 0x80240439. in the WSUS console, this server show snot reporting.

I just applied manual update and the 2022-09 Servicing stack update was successfully applied.

How do I clear this?

    Don't disable IPv6!

    I'd suggest reviewing your GPOs

    https://www.ajtek.ca/wsus/how-to-setup-manage-and-maintain-wsus-part-4-creating-your-gpos-for-an-inheritance-setup/

    And yes, you're right with the UseWUServer.... 1 = WSUS, 0 = Windows Update (WU)

    Yes, the client side script is the first thing I'd look at. The server is a simple client - of itself. Don't over-complicate the way you see this.

    For gpresult, ensure you're executing it from an Elevated prompt (Run As Administrator) in either PowerShell or CMD.

    gpresult /h gpo.htm is the best one to use as it will answer all of your questions and show you what is ACTUALLY applied vs what you think is applied. And, it tells you what GPO the policy setting is from!
