Wsus not updating a workstation
However I do not know which ports to open for in the firewall.
Which ports does WSUS use to distribute patches and report back to SCCM ?
This will re-populate the “Software Distribution” folder, after which you can re-issue the two update commands and the client should now report correctly to the WSUS Console.
I'm not sure this is the right forum to post this, but I give it a go.
For various reasons some small organizations may have a group of computers that they would rather not join the domain.
However, they may prefer to update all the patches on these computers by using the WSUS server.
You can leave your computers in a workgroup and still add them to any computer groups you want.Computer groups are created in WSUS to manage computers and deploy patches in a more controlled fashion.
