Nice to Know – After in place upgrade of Windows Server 2012 R2 to Windows Server 2016 with WSUS install, Post Install might fail

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on April 25, 2017

Note:

Ok, so you might not do an in-place upgrade, instead you re-install the entire server, but “if” you do, you need to run this command sometimes

Issue:

Configuration failed for Windows Server Update Services…

Fix:

Open an elevated command prompt and execute the following

For Windows Internal Database (WID)
%programfiles%\update services\tools\wsusutil.exe postinstall CONTENT_DIR=C:\WSUS

SQL Server databases
%programfiles%\update services\tools\wsusutil.exe postinstall CONTENT_DIR=C:\WSUS SQL_INSTANCE_NAME=<database server name>

/m
