Windows Update Stuck?

Super Contributor

All my servers are running Server 2016. It seems whenever I run Windows Updates they hang forever. This one has been sitting on 0% for a couple hours now, but everything else works fine on this same server. My other server is at about 42% after 3 hours. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a way to do Windows Updates more efficiently on my 9 servers?

Hi,
Pls check to the followings.
1- storage space available for download.
2 - check connection and your network firewall is allow for that services
3 - your server hardware is fine or not. (It’s mean is Physical Network adapter or something. Some WiFi adapter is very slow speed for connection. I had experience on 2012. Heee. :) . )
4 - your license is already activated or not. (If your running on production, you may need to check it)
5 - Check to server background services. May be some services will conflict settings.
6 - Check to proxy settings if using on your network available of WSUS.
7 - if your using WSUS. Also check to policy configuration.
I hope that is will helpful for you.
Also I hope all are fine in this COVID periods. Sorry for weakness of my English.
Thanks.

What state? Is it downloading or installing?

One option may be to stand up your own WSUS at the site. (I'd start a new thread to discuss this one)

 

 

I mean we are talking about 2016 Server, so I dont understand what's the problem ;D
