WSUS - Server 2012 R2 - Export and Import

I have a Server 2012 R2 system with the WSUS role installed.  This server resides on a disconnected network so we must bring updates from an online WSUS server.  I have experience performing successful exports and imports in the past with Server 2008
R2 and WSUS 3.0 SP2 (with KB2828185).  However, I have yet to get a successful import on Server 2012 R2.  The issue I am experiencing comes after what appears to be a successful import.  All of the updates show up in the catalog, but none of
the approvals are there.  I approve the relevant updates and the number of updates needing files on the status screen increase, but they never verify the content.  The individual updates are stuck indefinitely waiting for content with no errors to
be found anywhere.  Both servers have identical OS and WSUS configuration.  Here is my procedure.
Source Server
 - Approve/Decline relevant updates
 - Wait for download to finish
 - Run Server Cleanup Wizard
 - Backup WSUSContent directory using 7-Zip to break into DVD size files
 - wsusutil.exe export export.xml.gz export.log   (I've tried and export.gz, neither produces a different result)
 - Copy and extract all content to disconnected server.
 - Import metadata with "wsusutil.exe import export.xml.gz import.log"
As I said, I get no related error messages in any event log, SoftwareDistribution.log, WindowsUpdate.log, Change.log.
When I've done this in the past with WSUS 3.2, the status dashboard would show all the approved updates that require content and that number would quickly decrease as the system would validate the files in the WSUSContent directory.  This is occurring
on both my test server and my live server.  I'm confident that I have missed something, but I need help.  Anything that anyone can offer would be appreciated.


Hi Wayne,
Before we export and import updates, we should confirm that the settings for express installation files and update languages on the WSUS export server match the settings on the WSUS import server. If these settings do not match, updates will not
be correctly applied.
>> I approve the relevant updates and the number of updates needing files on the status screen increase, but they never verify the content. 
Please try to run wsusutil reset.
If issue persists, please check if the WSUS content folder has the proper configuration.
Besides, could you please restart the export WSUS server and export/import again?
Best Regards.
