  • Born: September non-security Office updates blamed for WSUS synchronization failures

    Posted on September 6th, 2018 at 10:01 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    It looks like this may have just been solved, but Günter Born reports that this month’s non-security Office patches are causing update server synchronization failures:

    There is an error reported in the SOAP connection used by WSUS to the Microsoft servers.

    it was clear that it had to do with the Office patchday and the released updates. Further attempts were made to narrow down the Office 2016 category updates as a root cause. As soon as users remove this category from the update synchronization, the synchronization works again.

    Anybody else seeing the problem?
