  • How often do wsus clients contact with the wsus server?

    Hello,

    Does anyone know how often the wsus clients contact with the server to download the updates?

    I don't see any parameter in the wsus console regarding that.

    Thanks in advance.

    There is a setting in the WSUS console as to time and day to look for updates.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      That's for the WSUS server contacting the upstream server (or Microsoft). Client check frequency is through Group Policy - IIRC from 1 hour to 23 hours

        By default, the Windows Update client checks for updates every 22 hours.

          Or you can force it by using the command wuauclt /detectnow or UsoClient startscan on Windows 10 systems.
