Admins routinely facing WSUS issues might have a tool to check out.
The tool promises to validate Windows Update configuration values, test for and diagnose issues with connection to WSUS, and step-by-step repair instructions for any errors the agent throws back at the admin.
Last week, Microsoft patched the Windows Update and WSUS agents as a result of the Flame malware threat.
SolarWinds also offers Patch Manager, a $3,000 tool that can diagnose and repair problems with WSUS and gives top-level management of patches that can be scheduled.
