Hi,

We have recently got ESU for Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 however these Servers are not showing any updates available. I've triple checked the registry to make sure they're in the right WSUS Computer group and that the patches are really approved to the right groups.

WSUS Server is running on Windows Server 2016.

Any pointers where to look?

Thanks!

    @Lanky Doodle
    Thanks for your posting on Q&A.

    We have to purchase the ESU(Extended Security Updates) if we want to get the security updates after January 14, 2020 in Server 2008 / R2. Please review this link to know about ESU first if you haven't knew before. If you have already purchased, please ignore it.

    Thanks for your time and have a nice day.

    Regards,
    Rita
