  • WSUS Content directory is empty ?

    Hi All,

    I'm having problem with my WSUS 3.0 SP1 server which i install in my Windows Server 2003 Std R2 SP2 x64 edition, it seems that the WSUS directory is always 0 KB (empty) even though the synchronization process still working every week.

    I've type the proxy credentials in the console Options | Update Source and Proxy Server | Proxy tab. and check the "Allow basic authentication" too.

    I've tried "proxycfg -u" comes back fine and it doesn't seems to work as the directory is still 0 KB in size.

    Can anyone shed some light in this matter please ?

    Thanks.

    Synchronisation will give you the list of updates
    In options/update files and languages, how are the storage options set?

      the storage options is already configured to download the auto-approved files from the main WSUS server.

      see the attachment.

          Yes it is atuomatically approved Ossian,
          sadly I noticed the following repetitious error in my EventViewer:

          eventhough I've setup the proxy username and password already.
