Can you open download.wsusoffline.net in Internet Explorer or other browsers? Do you use any proxy?

PS: You should remove your e-mail address from your post if you don't want to get it spammed (spammers are very active in this forum).

Yes, able to browse the download.wsusoffline.net, also we are not using the proxy.
We are using the SCCM in our environment, but for some reasons we are thinking to use this download.wsusoffline.net to deploy the patches on servers by creating the package, but while using this tool and selecting the option for win2k8, win2k12 and win2k16 by using the "UpdateGenerator" getting the error below, even we tried it from other servers as well where we have a full internet access as well still getting the same error;

Name resolution - which wget complains about - has nothing to do with the protocol used in the URL.

OK, let's try this: Open CMD and navigate to wsusoffline\bin directory (or open CMD directly via context menu on this directory). Then execute the following commands:
Code: Select all
nslookup download.wsusoffline.net
ping download.wsusoffline.net
wget --spider --server-response http://download.wsusoffline.net/wsusoffline1102.zip
and post the resulting output here (preferably in CODE tags).

Do you use some (corporate) firewall which may prevent wget from accessing the internet?

Something is not right with the DNS resolver on your system or on your network. You should be getting something like this:
Code: Select all
C:\>nslookup download.wsusoffline.net
Server:  miraculix.lan
Address:  192.168.0.100

Nicht autorisierende Antwort:
Name:    download.wsusoffline.net
Address:  81.3.27.18
With "miraculix.lan" being different from mine, i.e. this should be your local DNS server of course.

So I wonder how you are able to browse download.wsusoffline.net in a browser when your system clearly can't resolve this name. It's definitely an issue with DNS on your system or network which you should solve first. Check if the DNS of your LAN/internet connection is set to the correct one that is able to resolve external names.

Hello Admin, I am using this tool, and I would like to thanks to you for this tool as its very helpfull for applying the back dated patches to servers, but now a days I am looking for some automation like ,, I want to deploy the patches by using this tool from powershell script as we have all servers from windows servers 2008 onwards to windows servers 2016 , where I am unable to do the same from psexec command line's hence I am prepairing the powershell script but somehow its not getting executing on list of servers, here is the script details;

==============================================================
$Servers = Get-Content "G:\GP\Script\Servers.txt"
foreach ($c in $Servers)
{{
$files= get-content "G:\gp\Script\fileslist.txt"
Foreach ($File in $Files)
{Copy-Item $file -Destination \\$c\C$\ -force}}

$sessions = New-PSSession -ComputerName $c -Credential $Cred

Invoke-Command -Session $sessions -ScriptBlock { Invoke-Expression "cmd.exe /c C:\WSUSUpdate.CMD"} -ArgumentList WSUSUpdate.CMD -AsJob
==============================================================
So the required batch file "WSUSUpdate.cmd" is getting copied to C drive of all list of servers and also I can see its gets successfull on same screen, but if I want to monitor the execution of this batch file from any of the server by logged in to the server, once i logged in, then it gets start to execute the batch file, so there is login dependencies I can say for this script, which I dont required, so could you please help me for the same on this script , which can copy the batch file or either way of any, my "doupdate.cmd" file gets execute on muiltiple servers as once and on same script I can monitor the execution also.
Appreciate in advance for further inputs from your end.
