Windows 10 1511 and beyond with WSUS

Friday 22nd January 2016


  • Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2
  • WSUS set to download Windows 10 upgrade builds
  • WSUS fails to download from the MS servers - event log points to a certificate error.




This allows WSUS to download and verify the upgrade ESD's. It also performs some maintenance on the internal database. After installing, Windows 10 clients no longer show as Vista.


After installing, you may need to reboot the server and clear the BITS queue. In my case - WSUS completely stuck the download queue, fixed with "wsusutil reset".
