AWS Cloud Standalone WSUS Clients are not communicating with WSUS

Issue Reported: Configure Standalone WSUS server for security patch management but Clients are not getting patch via WSUS.


I have done multiple validate from os level with working environment like Cloud and Non-Cloud environment.  Below are root solution work to fix issue.

Step 1:Perform on action on client system it include (Desktop and Servers)

  • Run regedit and go to KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate
  • Delete the PingID, SUSClientID and the AccountDomainSID values
  • Stop and start the Wuauserv Service
  • From the command prompt run: wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

Step 2: After Performing above steps Client start reporting to wsus as normal and start getting security patches via standalone WSUS.
