Update not approval on WSUS
Update not approval on WSUS downstream server
After synchronizing a downstream server, updates appear in the Unapproved category.
The cleanup allows the 14 updates to be placed as rejected, however during synchro they return as unapproved. This is due to the fact that a cleanup was first done on the upstream server. Microsoft recommends to perform the cleanup on all the downstream servers and then on the upstream server. In order to delete the updates, the following operations are necessary:
- Stopping the update Services service
- Stopping the Windows Internal Database or SQL service
- Copy database
- Restart the two services
- Modify the configuration of the impacted WSUS server so that it is neither a replica nor a downstream server.
Run the PowerShell script : Download here. The script must be executed on the impacted server.
Modify file Updatestodelete.txt and enter iD of update to be deleted.
Reconfigure the server so that it is considered as a downstream and replica server (update source window and proxy server). Launch synchronization and test.
