Problem with Windows Update

Hi,

can anybody help/advise what to check/where to start with Win update problems?

Customer runing 6400 cluster on R81, https inspection on,

enabled_blades fw vpn urlf av appi ips identityServer SSL_INSPECT anti_bot ThreatEmulation mon Scrub

 

Reporting the problem with direct winupdate, local wsus updates are fine. By them difference between nonCP subnet vs CP controlled subnet are: 

-servers cannot find updates/cannot update download most of time,

-updates found after seveal tries sometime,

-time to find/download update 10times longer behind CP

 

as far as know Update services should be bypasses implicitly + HTTPS policy contains rules:

log not shows any Microsoft related connections processed by inspection / blocked (little bit wierd log from TE which is not enabled for this subnet..), but in result have no idea where to look more.Capture2.PNG

 

Thanks for tips here,

LN

First thing I would look at are drops in dashboard. Then, run zdebug on the firewall filtering for IP address of the affected machine...say IP is 10.10.10.35, you would do fw ctl zdebug + drop | grep 10.10.10.35 from expert mode of the firewall or whichever one is master, if cluster. If that does not show anything either, then I would dig deeper with tcpdump and fw monitor, also filter for specific IP.

Didn't directly checked fw ctl zdebug drops so far... but in Smartlog no any relevant drops.In additional don't think so its a hard network/firewalling error,

Looks to me as a intercepting problem (sometimes ok, sometimes not, tooks longer, problem running accross servers...), thats why suspecting URL filtering and HTTPS inspect

Easiest way to tell is if you disable https inspection and test...never seen url filtering cause this, but logs would show it, for sure.
