I have looked in the registry and in all configuration files that I can see and everything looks okay.I am clueless at this point as to why it is not updating itself. can you - put the server in an OU that is seperate from the workstations and link a new GPO for it?I am part of a hugh organization so I don't have admin rights to create my own gpo's.

So I really never go to MS for updates, the HQ server does. we re-route wsus server download from upstream server in managed cloud.to configurations: 1)wsus console ---options---upstream point to microsoftupdate.2) registry settings on wsus server point to the same location now all other servers report to wsus server console without any issue except wsus server itself It stopped reporting to wsus console and no any update.. You might be able to fix the problem by creating a local policy for your server....***** If so here is an example GPO from one of my WSUS servers: Windows Components/Windows Updatehide Policy Setting Allow Automatic Updates immediate installation Enabled Automatic Updates detection frequency Enabled Check for updates at the following interval (hours): 22 Policy Setting Configure Automatic Updates Enabled Configure automatic updating: 4 - Auto download and schedule the install The following settings are only required and applicable if 4 is selected.
