Wsus server not updating itself
I have a very nice script below that saved me 300% of downloads.
It’s also a good time to verify that only the Products and Languages you actually need are selected. Now run the Automatic Approval Rule to start the downloads.
The secret is, you can search Microsoft Update Catalog for those Update ID's. For each Update ID you've found, copy and paste it, without brackets, into the search field, and hit Enter.
You can then add each update to your basket, and import them into WSUS.
Even if you don’t plan on deploying this upgrade, you will probably want to install this patch so that WSUS won’t break in the future.
My WSUS folder was located on C: then moved to D: and finally E: To reclaim the space after all unnecessary files has been deleted run s Delete on all volumes.This is because all database tables are being checked and any missing hotfixes are being marked for download. The thing with WSUS is that it’s going to download everything, even superseded updates. My WSUS folder went from 75 GB to 20 GB so I’m happy.
