I don’t see any parameter in the wsus console regarding that. Thanks in advance. biggles77Spectator March 8, 2018 at 11:39 pm #214389 There is a setting in the WSUS console as to time and day to look for updates. OssianModerator March 9, 2018 at 3:11 am #191947 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 joeqwertyModerator March 9, 2018 at 6:07 pm #304622 By default, the Windows Update client checks for updates every 22 hours. wullieb1Moderator March 13, 2018 at 2:30 pm #245739 Or you can force it by using the command wuauclt /detectnow or UsoClient startscan on Windows 10 systems. shefiMember April 24, 2018 at 4:12 am #380053 Many Thanks!
