Microsoft says that some WSUS servers upgraded to Windows Server 2022 might fail to push Windows 11, version 22H2 updates released during this month’s Patch Tuesday to endpoints across enterprise environments. Does this surprise you?

This known issue only affects WSUS servers upgraded from Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2019.

Microsoft Configuration Manager (part of the Microsoft Endpoint Manager) is not affected by this issue.

“The updates will download to the WSUS server but might not propagate further to client devices. Affected WSUS servers are only those running Windows Server 2022 which have been upgraded from Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2019,” Microsoft said.

As Redmond further explains, these problems result from .msu and .wim MIME types being accidentally removed during the upgrade process to Windows Server 2022.

“This issue is caused by the accidental removal of required Unified Update Platform (UUP) MIME types during the upgrade to Windows Server 2022 from a previous version of Windows Server,” the company added.

“This issue might affect security updates or feature updates for Windows 11, version 22H2.”

Microsoft is working on a fix for this known issue and will provide more information with a future update.
