    Re: How to fix common issues with Server Update services

    The most common error that I had seen lies with update installation. A number of time updates failed to install. You can see a number of time on the server there are ample of updates which are pending for installation. Even when you had approved them. Now that can be due to many reasons. Sometime the update is buggy while sometime the issue lies with WSUS configuration. There will be annoying reminders about the update and sometime the desktop crash to load. For that at the below link I am giving you a tool that will help you to run Windows Update Automated Troubleshooter. This tool simply scans the system and check for the most known errors in the system. You can run that and clear the error issues. It is a tiny 77KB file that will tell you how to deal with the most common issue of windows server. I will advice you to run that every now and then whenever you face the problem. I am sure this will be the best for your package.

    One issue that I had seen is a number of time WSUS does not shows you the right updates. The issue lies with the installer source. The updates which are applied are not properly optimized due to which you get the error. There is a manual fix for the same but no automated fix.

    There must be some automated software that can work automatically to scan and fix the problem you are facing. There is a huge list of errors that commonly appear on windows server and you cannot do much in that. The common errors are http errors, config error, security errors, etc. The best thing to keep your server work properly without any problem is keeping a close watch on the log files. This log files gives you clear information on what are stuff going on in your system and also you can troubleshoot the same with reasonable solutions. So just check the logs everyday.
