Hi Everyone,

I am using the following powershell script to provide end of WSUS reporting capabilities

https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/27419/How-to-send-automatically-an-e-mail-with-a-report-of...

 

Yet I note two VMs in the report (one is the WSUS server) returning "Not reported Yet", Unknown '4'


WSUS Server is running Windows Server 2012 Standard
The other is running Windows Server 2016 Datacenter (and says update history "no updates have been installed yet") which is incorrect. I'm assuming this is because we renamed the C:\windows\SoftwareDistribution after stopping bits,crypto,windows update services then restarting.

 

# Status Server IP Address Last Contact Total Pend reboot Install Ready Pending DL Failed Unknown
110 Not reported yet Server IP, 7 06/15/2021 08:40:49 4 0 0 0 0 4
42 Not reported yet Server IP 06/15/2021 11:16:57 4 0 0 0 0 4

 

Has anyone come across this behavior and know how to resolve?


Thanks.
