We are starting to get sensors in error for Windows updates with the following error.
Could not retrieve update data. Please make sure your WSUS is configured correctly. (code: PE205)
The servers in question are all Windows 2012R2. We do not run SCCM. The servers are updated using WSUS. WSUS is running on a Windows 2016 server. Running the following PowerShell commands on the PRTG server (in an Administrator PowerShell Session) yield no output.
PS C:\Users\administrator.PEASD> Enter-PSSession -ComputerName pe-mgmt [pe-mgmt]: PS C:\Users\administrator.PEASD\Documents> $searcher = (New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.Session).CreateUpdateSearcher();$searcher.Search("Type='Software'").Updates | Sort-Object -Property Dates -Descending [pe-mgmt]: PS C:\Users\administrator.PEASD\Documents> date Thursday, January 25, 2018 1:49:26 PM [pe-mgmt]: PS C:\Users\administrator.PEASD\Documents>
I am able to run commands remotely, which is why I ran date after the Windows Update Sensor PowerShell scripted command. The time to complete the command is just under 1 second when run via Enter-PSSession or when run locally on PowerShell on the target server. The server currently up to date on updates and this is properly reported in WSUS.
