Few Servers Not Being Patched via WSUS

Topics: Configuration Issue
Aug 27, 2014 at 10:43 PM
Hello All, we have an environment where servers are patched using WSUS. They are divided into 2 parts - AUTO RE-START and MANUAL RE-START. We have observed that few servers which are in MANUAL RE-START mode have not been patched since July 23, 2014. Upon getting to the Windows Update page it shows a GREEN TICK MARK stating that the server patches are up-to-date. WSUS has released around 4 patches to be installed on to the servers. All the servers have been patched fine but around 8 - 9 servers which are Windows Server 2008 Enterprise have not been patched during the August 19, 2014 patching. I have the windows update logs from one of the servers given below. I need some help urgently to determine why these servers were not patched during the August patching and the rest of them were patched fine.
