Windows Update Sensor Timeout




I launched a windows update status sensor to a server. It gives me the P018 timeout. I tried finding the option increasing that timeout value but didn't succeed in it.

Can you point out where I can find this ?

Hi DL, I'm experiencing the same PE018 timeout, initially there was another unable to communicate issue which was suggested I run "winrm quickconfig" from the cmd prompt. I ran this command and then started getting the PE018 timeout.

Anyone else experience this?

Dear users

Are you using the remote registry version, or the powershell version of the sensor?
