Wsus server not self updating

This is found in Computer Configuration Hi Skaughty, I am pretty sure that the only way to update my windows 2008 server is by adding this server in my WSUS updating list. We don't want to download the whole updates list for 2008 srv and we want to download updates from Windows Update. You can check the status of this from the WSUS server console under Administrative Tools.For the underlying server itself, it behaves just like any other client server and will talk to the WSUS installation to obtain its updates.I'm in an AD environment and all of my clients are updating successfully to the WSUS server. I also added my 2008 server to that OU and it receives updates from WSUS. I want my server to download updates from windowsupdate website.I just can't find anything that allow me to do this...Problems here are usually due to firewall restrictions between the server and the Internet.If the problem is with the server OS getting updates from the WSUS install, check the WSUS event log in c:\Windows\Software Distribution\ and see if there's any more info about the error there.Introduction Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) can be used to manage the deployment of the latest Microsoft Windows operating system updates.

I am wondering if I need to add my 2008 server in my updating list in WSUS. Then you can manually set the Auto Update service point to MS update server (regedit or local policy) ?

Download updates from WSUS and at the sime time, update the server itself. I will assume you are in a Active Directory environment.

If you want to reconfigure the server to go directly to Microsofts update service, and ignore the local WSUS service, edit the update settings in the registry under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\Windows Update\AU To reset this you can delete the AU key, and it will be re-initialised on a reboot. And I can't paste the 10 last lines because is too big. {7819CC42-78BE-4329-A069-11A652935AFB} 2010-01-27 :988-0500 1 148 101 {00000000-0000-0000-0000-0000000‌​00000} 0 80244019 Au‌​tomatic Updates Failu‌​re Software Synchronization Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80244019.

If none of this solves the issue, next questions would be: Hi Chris, I thought that I need to add my 2008 server (which is the WSUS server) to update itselft by itself... Then, I took a look in the registry but I don't see that key. {EA888ED4-21A0-418B-BA80-919F2674DDD9} 2010-01-27 :116-0500 1 148 101 {00000000-0000-0000-0000-0000000‌​00000} 0 80244019 Au‌​tomatic Updates Failu‌​re Software Synchronization Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80244019.

It should show up just like any other client on the WSUS console.

If the problem is with WSUS itself not being able to obtain updates from the internet, run through the WSUS server configuration wizard (via the WSUS console) and there's a step that should test the connection out to the Internet.
