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


A good tip from the “Deployment Bunny” AKA Mikael Nyström regarding the in-place upgrade of a Windows Server 2012 R2 hosting WSUS and it’s SQL instance to Windows Server 2016.

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 servicestoolswsusutil.exe postinstall CONTENT_DIR=C:WSUS

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

/m
