Hi everyone!

I installed the WSUS service on the W2K19 core but I cannot find this log file. May someone help me?

    @Doria
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
    You may change the command prompt to PowerShell.
    Then use the command to get last one hour entries.

    get-eventlog Application -after (get-date).addhours(-1)  
    

    Remember the index.
    Use the Index to see the full details:

    get-eventlog Application | where index -eq xxxxx | format-list *

    Thanks guys for the answers!

    I thought 'WindowsUpdate.log' file was a client log, not the WSUS service log file. Anyway, I found this as file content:
