FREE SolarWinds Diagnostic Tool for the WSUS Agent now available for download

As a Product Manager for SolarWinds, I get the opportunity to influence the development of products, and sometimes the opportunity to create new products, and as a WSUS MVP I’m very familiar with the everyday challenges of WSUS Administrators. So, I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of the FREE SolarWinds® Diagnostic Tool for the WSUS Agent.
This tool is an alternative to the Client Diagnostic Tool, which many of us have relied on over the years to help troubleshoot client connectivity issues, but we’ve made some significant enhancements to the new version of this toolThe Diagnostic Tool runs on x64 and x86 systems

Additional validation tests on key configuration options, such as syntax checking on the WSUS URL, and validating the installed version of the Windows Update Agent against the installed version of Windows

  • Extended connectivity checks to the WSUS server, translation of error codes to human-readable messages, and suggestions for known resolutions to those issues
  • Both GUI and Command-Line interface.

The tool is a ZIP download with a single EXE installer. Upon installation on the client, the tool automatically launches and initiates the diagnostic scan. You can download the tool today and try it out, or we also posted a video to YouTube that describes and demonstrates the tool if you’d like to have a sneak peek.
