Hi,

I installed WSUS on Windows Server 2019.

On this WSUS, I selected the following updates : 185608-wsus-updates.pngMicrosoft Defender Antivirus and Windows 10, version 1903 and later.

I need to sort those updates to keep only the latest ones, and disregard the obsolete ones (see attachement).

Could you explain to me what are the criterias to do this ?

Is it a date criteria or a version criteria ?

Could you give me an exemple please ?

Best regards,

Emmanuel

    Hi,

    I have another question regarding WSUS.

    I am using VirtualBox, on which I installed two virtual machines, Windows Server 2019 and a master where I installed Windows 10.

    The ping starting from the server does not reach the master.187154-1.png187155-2.png187070-3.png187181-4.png

    It says that all the packets are received but the host is not reachable.

    WSUS does not detect my master, so it does not appear under the section "unassigned computers".

    I installed WSUSClientManger on my master and gave it the ip adress of the server.

    Both my server and my master are on "Public" on the ethernet section

    I am tryning to enable the Network discovery and file sharing in the network advanced settings but it does not stay enabled, it keeps on going back to disabled.

    I also tried the following cmd commands, but it does not bring any changes, the server won't detect the master.

    • gpupdate /force
    • wuauclt /detectnow
    • wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow

    Could you advise me on how to solve this situation and finally have my server to detect my master ?

    Then, I will need to transfer the microsoft updates from my server to my master, but I don't know whar procedure to follow, if you could you
    help me on this matter please ?

    Kind regards,

    Emmanuel
