    Our WSUS fails to download updates we have followed these directions but cannot get them to work!!!

    We have an isolated network that is not connected to the internet. The steps we have taken is as follows:

    1. Download updates from another source.

    2. Log onto WSUS as Local Administrator

    3. Shutdown Update Services and copy updates to the \WSUS\WsusContent folder

    4. From here we run CMD as administrator and use wsusutil.exe import e:\wsus\wsuscontent\ log.txt which runs for roughly 30 minutes. We receive no errors upon completion and no errors in the log file.

    5. Update Services is restarted automatically after the import is run, OpenWindows Server Update Services and find that all the updates say The filesfor this update have not yet been downloaded

    I know it can take time for the metadata to match to the downloaded file but have sitting over night it still has not "found" the updates. We have tried starting from scratch by reinstalling WSUS all together and attempted a wsusutil.exe reset but the issue remains.

    The WSUS server runs on Windows 2008R2
