Windows Updates Status - No result returned from remote host




Sometimes random Windows hosts give the error as written in the title. Mostly, it's right after installing updates on the particular host. For some hours, this message's is terurned by PRTG.

Looking at the host we found nothing off, we can poll the update list with PowerShell. The server is accassable.

What could be the cause of this?
