Have a weird issue, just build a server 2012 r2 box to replace a server.

Once in our domain, it gets wsus settings and then will show up in our
wsus console.

Gets the first 20ish updates fine, but then shows it needs 0 updates,
even though if I check our wsus console, there are probably a couple
hundred for server 2012r2, this just will not detect them.

Any suggestions? Aside from things like moving to linux, etc. :-)

I've already fdisk'd it and built it twice from scratch.

Hi Stevo

It never ceases to amaze me how you ask for Microsoft assistance in a
Micro Focus forum!

Anyways, on the server not getting updates try the following at command
line: wuauclt /detectnow

Let us know how it goes as there are other ways of doing this.

Cheers,

So my response to laurabuckley's comment is...

Well I'm not allowed to ask for Novell help in this forum. Plus, I'd
rather ask this smart bunch for help where you might actually *get*
help vs a M$ forum where it's canned answers. :-)

Also, I've tried the wuauclt commands, removed it from wsus and added
it again, done the /resetauthorization, and nothing helps.

So, I downloaded a diffent iso, one that already has the ~900MB update
to server 2012r2 and rebuilt the server with this iso.

Seems to be fine now getting all the updates.

A very long time ago, we chose to allow our chat members to ask
non-Novell (now non-Micro Focus) questions in here, because they
receive better answers here than they can find anywhere else.

Besides, they're family. Family helps family. :)

Glad its working for you now!

I had to get comfortable with Linux (post NetwWare), but now that I
am, I like Linux patching better than Windows patching. If only all
the applications we run would run on Linux. Oh well, at least most of
my servers are OES/SLES.

Must be rough, we're down to our GW servers, everything else is
windblows. Plus, we're (not me mind you) looking at moving all file &
email services to m$'s cloud services.........<shakes head & shudders>

Laura:

You caused no offense and there was no need to apologize. I just
thought you should know, for the future. The chat rules that once
existed that were specific to this group mentioned it. Now they
don't, so there was no way for you to have known. :)

I suppose thats an option, but it would have to work flawlessly with
all of our oddball software.

If we go down this route, figure my standard reply when a user calls
about having problems with file or email access, I'll just give them
microsoft's number.
