When using your WSUS server, there are hundreds of possible errors you could encounter. Investigating WSUS errors and possible solutions can take up an enormous amount of your time, whether it’s through trial-and-error or searching forum articles on fixes for your specific, and often unique, situation. Instead of getting frustrated and wasting time on yet another issue with WSUS, invest in WSUS Automated Maintenance (WAM) and spend your time on more pressing matters.
WAM’s installation is extremely simple and comes with an unattended procedure to easily use the software on multiple systems or for server core installations. Additionally, configuration is effortless by selecting the standard installation causing all defaults to be selected. For those with more specific needs, you can use the advanced configuration for further customization. If you ever have any questions, prompt customer support is available through the website for all active subscriptions on the latest version of the software.
Once the software is installed, it will index the WSUS database, which can increase operation speed up to 1,500 times. You’ll also have the ability to decline multiple types of updates and remove declined updates as well as compress update revisions. All of these functions are automatic and will work as expected without WSUS errors.
