  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.5


Installation of WSUS inside container using roles fails and Server Manager shows the following error:

"The update could not be found. There may be a network issue."


Windows Update service is not configured by default inside containers.


To install WSUS role inside container it is necessary to configure Windows Update service from within the container using below commands:
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v NoAutoUpdate /t  REG_DWORD /f /d 0
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate" /v WUServer /f /d
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate" /v WUStatusServer /f /d

Restart of Windows Update Service is required::
net stop wuauserv
net start wuauserv
c:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow
