Last month I wrote an article about running Pi-hole in a docker container to block advertisements for devices on my local network at home.
One problem emerged: Windows 10 did not receive updates anymore. To make Windows Update possible again a couple of hostnames need to be added to the Pi-Hole whitelist.
Go to the Pi-Hole webadmin page at
http://<pi-hole ip>/admin and login
Now add the correct exceptions to the whitelist
Below are the hostnames for Windows Update to work.
browser.pipe.aria.microsoft.com mobile.pipe.aria.microsoft.com nexusrules.officeapps.live.com settings-win.data.microsoft.com v10.events.data.microsoft.com watson.telemetry.microsoft.com
Please be aware that the Microsoft Update infrastructure is subject to change and the hostname may vary after some time.
