    Hello all,

    New downstream WSUS server install. It appears to have sunchronised, as
    updates are showing in the console, but on the home page the 'Last
    Synchronisation result' says 'Failed'.
    In event viewer i have errors:

    eventid 386: Synchronization failed. Reason: Failed to approve some updates.

    I've googled around but can't find an answer to that specific issue, has
    anyone seen this before?

    thanks.

  2. Can you try this real quick. Unapprove all of the expired updates on the
    upstream server and then try to sync the downstream again.

    Hi Eddie,

    I assume you mean decline updates that have been superseded?

    If so that's what I've done, and the sync has failed again.

    Thanks, Andrew

    Eddie, sorted I found one that was 'unapproved', declined it and manualy
    sync, worked a treat.

    Thanks for your help, Andrew
