Over time, you may experience issues with content stored on the WSUS server drive. These issues may include:
- Drive consumes too much space
- WSUS views display inaccurate information, such as inaccurate status information on Windows 10 computers
- WSUS connection timeout errors
- Managed clients fail to install updates
Many of these issues are caused by a full WSUS database or a WSUS drive that is out of space. To resolve these issues, use the Server Cleanup Wizard to delete expired updates and revisions from the WSUS server.
The wizard configures a threshold for the number of days that the WSUS server retains non-reporting computers in the Patch Manager Administrator Console. When you are finished, you can schedule a clean-up task to run each day, week, or month.
- Log in to Patch Manager as an administrator.
In the navigation pane, expand Enterprise > Update Services and select the WSUS server.
In the following example, SPM-MGOM is the WSUS server.
- In the Actions pane, click Server Cleanup Wizard.
Select your cleanup options to perform on the WSUS server, and click OK.
- In the Task Options Wizard, run the task now or create a schedule for the task.
- Complete the wizard.
