Preferred Solution: WSUS error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Computer's on 1909 show as 10.0.18362.1082
Computers on 1903 show as 10.0.18362.1082

Dear Team,
Can some one assist on how to check the data integrity between the downloaded microsoft patches in local WSUS server to microsoft wsus server
For example, if microsoft released the single latest patch and uploaded the patch in there WSUS server. Once uploaded then local WSUS server will fetch the patch and download it. Once the download is completed then how I would check the data integrity between
downloaded patch and available patch in microsoft wsus server

I recently installed SP1 for Windows Server Update Services on all of our 2k3 servers. I have not had any problems except 1. I noticed that it was not working correctly and i attempted to use the management site which did not allow me in. I was giving a database error/auth failure.

I have been looking around the web and i am more or less having the same issue as:

http://www.wsus.info/forums/lofiversion/index.php?t7940.html

When i checked the event viewer i noticed that it said it was having authentication errors. So i viewed the properties of the Update Service and found it was trying to log on with some weird credentials. I changed it to use the system credentials which was enough to atleast get the service started. However, im still having issues with actually having WSUS connect to the database.

Has anyone found a solution to this problem short of uninstalling and reinstalling WSUS?

A:WSUS SP1 - Error 421

The only solution to this problem that i have found is to re-run the setup and uninstall the database. Make sure to leave the update files and logs.

Then simply re-install the wsus and it is up and working without hardly any configuration.

I am running WSUS from a Win 2003 server which is out of free space and giving an error message.

Question 1: what is it safe to delete from the WSUS\WsusContent folder to make more room (it is currently taking up 32 Gig of a 40 gig hard drive)

Question 2: I don't know if this is related or not, but when I tried to open WSUS, I got the error: Server Error in '/WSUSAdmin' Application. Parser Error Message: Unable to load file 'adminstrings'

I am running WSUS on Server 2008 R2 x64.  I have Windows XP, Vista, and 7 clients connecting to it without any problems.  I recently installed Windows 8 Pro from my TechNet subscription on one of our workstations and I'm getting
an error 800B0001 when I try to run Windows Update.  I have tried the fix found at
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2720211 already with no luck.  When I'm adding a new system to our network, I use a registry entry to enter the settings and another one to remove them
when I'm finished (I have a computer repair shop so we see lots of computers come through). 


Here's the registry key used to instruct the system to look to the WSUS server for updates:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"WUServer"="http://192.168.5.23"
"WUStatusServer"="http://192.168.5.23"

Any ideas?  Thanks!

A:Loading IE10 via WSUS gives me a 9c59 error

SFC apparently managed to fix one error - and CheckSUR found no problems.
The installation appears to have been halted by the following error...

I would suggest attempting to bypass the error by installing IE11, rather than IE10 (it sometimes works!)

If that doesn't work, then try downloading the IE10 full-install package from here...

Hello everyone, I've looked around at other threads related to my issue, and I can't seem to find a correct answer.
I have a computer lab that I've recently installed a Windows 7 Enterprise image onto 35 Dell Optiplex computers (most are 380's, a few older 360's).
I created the image using MDT2010 and used one of the 380's as a reference.
All has been well for about a month or two but recently 6 computers are giving me Windows Update errors with the error code of 80080005.
I have a WSUS 3.0 SP2 server running, and all of my other computers seem to be getting their updates just fine.  WSUS has the problematic computers in it's database, but it shows that they haven't checked in for "x" days.
I have Avast 4.8 Professional installed, I have OpenDNS configured to block bad websites, ____, etc. and I also use an Untangle server to prevent access to bad websites.  I've ran a Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware scan on the affected computers, as well
as Windows Defender scan, and Windows Live OneCare scans, and all have found no malicious software.
I have also tried resetting the Windows update service as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058 as well as a script that supposedly does the same thing, but also resets all previous
update events, but I can't find the script source right now (I had ran it last week, and it didn't work).
I'm currently running a SFC /Scannow on one of the computers, and now it has finished.  It gives the... Read more

I searched around a bit, and found a suggestion to check that the TrustedInstaller/Windows Module Installer is running.
When trying to start the Windows Module Installer, I get this error:

What a fun problem this is turning out to be.  I'd like
to just re-image these computers, but I fear that it'll just happen again and I'm wondering why it's only a handful of computers that are affected, yet I have over 65 machines that were all installed from the same exact image.
 
I'll keep poking along trying to find something that fixes this darn issue.  If anybody comes up with any ideas, I'll gladly try them.  Thanks!

OK, I finally have got around to installing Windows Server Update Services and am sitting down to try and confgure it. It appears to be installed and has downloaded loads of updates which I will look though later, but at the moment I'm trying to set up the client computers, via a GPO.
I've been through the step-by-step help file:
Creating a WSUS GPO, Adding Template, Server direction, Behaviour config. I've linked the GPO to a group object, which contains one computer (the one sat on my desk).
In the WSUS management console thingy under computers however, I am seeing 3 computers that aren't a member of the group.

The only setting I omitted from the step-by-step guide was the set-up of contact frequency between server and computer, and I suspect this may be the cause of a problem? But I omitted it because the option doesn't appear to exist in my console.

I am running Server 2003 standard SP1, with XP pro SP2 clients.

Any ideas anyone? Cheers.

Hi,

Considering we have to deploy workstations wit MDT, we wander what should be the more efficient way :

- we tryed to apply convenience rollup then WSUS in MDT process = about 45 to 50 mns from a Windows 7 SP1 source
- we tryed to apply WSUS in MDT process = about 50 mns from a Windows 7 SP1 source (quite logical)
We saw that it was possible to include updates directly in WIM, may it be faster : as all of updates have to be applied we don't think so, but we prefer ask.

So what should be the best and fastest way to deploy an up to date Windows 7 workstation today :

- source + rollup + WSUS
- source + WSUS
- source with updates included ?

We do not want to include then re-capture image for the moment.

Hi. I've been an IT student for a while now but I don't have more than an overview of Servers. Can a server control any policies on it's clients without using group policies and active directory? I'm trying to understand configuring clients to use a WSUS server when you can't use active directory. Instead, would you have to configure each individual client, using local group policy, to update from the WSUS instead of the Update website? Thank you for any help. Shannon.

A:Windows 7 and WSUS

Hi Shanon Welcome to TSF

WSUS is windows update system that will monitor updates released by MS and tell you so you can approve or decline updates before they are applied to all the Computers in your domain environment so instead of computers going out to MS site and looking up updates and then downloading them individually they will be looking at the WSUS server and WSUS will download updates one time and then apply to rest of the computers (saves bandwidth)
As for WSUS and group policy - WSUS gets updates - GPO created for WSUS will dictate which updates will go to which workstation in which OU
Again this does not mean that client can't open up Windows update from Control panel and hit the link to "check online for updates from MS Update" and download whatever they feel like

I have an 8 Windows XP PC's small network. One of those PC's works as the "server" so to speak.

Anyone knows if I can install the WSUS on the Windows XP server machine to be able to deploy Windows updates on the workstations?

I really don't know if this is only possible with machines running Windows Server software.

Thanks

WSUS was designed to run within the server family of OS's you still have Windows Automatic Updates though.

Yes, the path is correct. Have you considered Group Policies to roll out WSUS settings?

Hi all.

I volunteer at a senior center computer facility. We provide 10 Windows HOME machines with access to the internet. We reimage the machines between sessions, and often between users to keep the machines virus and malware free. We also allow users to plug into our system with their own laptops, so they can access the internet with their equipment.
We chose to only update one of our machines to Windows 10. That machines insistance on downloading updates has been an issue. I typically install updates on Saturday on the Windows 7 machines, but the Windows 10 machine won't let us manage the updates. As a result it is often out of commission between when the updates are available, and Saturday when I can thaw the machine so it can install the updates, and freeze the machine again.

We mostly turn off the Windows 10 machine for the rest of the week if Windows updates are available. We have 3 years to plan and accumulate funds to address this situation.

I assume we are going to need to update all the machines to PRO,
Buy a Server
Buy a WSUS server
Network them all together and setup some WSUS scripts.
Hire a networking consultant,

Will we still be able to accommodate home users and android and apple tablets if our computers are controlled by a domain. I assume this will complicate DCHP.

This is so over my head, and I am the go to person on this.

I'm setting up a WSUS 3.0 SP2 server at work. I have the server running, it's downloaded all of the updates for Office 2007 as well as XP, Vista and Windows 7.

I configure my Automatic Updates GPO on the domain to set the WSUS server, download and schedule installs and allow the end-user to reboot at their convenience.

I test from Windows XP and Windows Vista and I have no problems. Everything works as expected, updates are found, downloaded and can be installed or they install automatically at the scheduled install time.

With my Windows 7 Enterprise clients however, the system gets the settings properly from the GPO ( I can confirm looking at C:\windows\windowsupdate.log). I log in with a domain account that is a member of the local computers Admin group. The system updates the WU client version from 7.3.7600.16385 to 7.4.7600.226. At this point, nothing more is written to the log and looking at the installed updates history it shows only the Windows update Agent. The system is not telling me that a reboot is necessary, it's not showing the Automatic Updates shield in the taskbar and I don't see the Auto updates shield on the Shutdown button. At this point, I tell the machine to restart

When the machine starts up, during Starting Windows...you can see it updating some registry info then it huts the blue background screen and says Applying Windows updates. I log back on with my local account which is a local admin. I assume this is the Windows Update Agen... Read more

Hey guys,

I ran into a snag when trying to install .NET 3.5 (from Programs and Features) on our Windows 10 Enterprise domain machines.

We recently started using Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) for our domain machines to save bandwidth when installing updates on everybody's PCs. I created a GPO and configured automatic installs, as well as specified the Intranet WSUS server connection. I did NOT disable checking online, so in Windows 7+8 there is an option to "check online for updates", and in Windows 10 we have this:
However, it seems to ONLY check the WSUS server when trying to add optional features, and thus causes an error as the files are not there. I did some searches, and found what was said to be a solution: enabling this policy:

Code:
Administrative Templates, System, ?Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair? to ?Enabled? and checking the box ?Contact Windows Update directly to download repair content instead of Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)?
What's interesting is that this DID fix the problem... on Windows 8 and 8.1 machines. But on Windows 10 I still get the error. I have seen threads where people said that GPO fixed it for them, so I'm not sure why it isn't working in my case. Yes, I've done gpupdate /force several times, and it's not just one machine that has this problem, all of our W10 domain machines do it.

To clarify, we're using the x64 version of Windows 10 Enterprise. Not LTSB, just... Read more

A:0x800F081F when using WSUS on Domain

I have the same exact issue in my environment.

The GPO setting to bypass WSUS for adding features works on 2012 and 8.x but not on Windows 10. This is not just one or two but all Windows 10 Enterprise systems that have this issue.

If you watch the network, when you try to add a feature it still connects to the WSUS server instead of Microsoft directly, as though it's ignoring the GPO option.

If they are removed from the domain, it works fine downloading from Microsoft directly.

Using source media via command line also works, but I don't want to do that long term for many systems on the network.

Anyone found a fix yet?

Before July 2010, XP SP2 clients can download patches from WSUS. After that, all XP SP2 clients cannot download patches from WSUS but SP3 clients can.

Is it Microsoft's policy?
If yes, can use WSUS to download SP3 to SP2 clients?

Thanks

A:XP SP2 download patches from WSUS

Microsoft has been pushing out Windows XP and some other products, removing support for them in favour of newer products, so yes it is.

I would have thought you could get XP SP3 on machines with SP2, but not too sure.

Can you apply multiple GPO's to one OU?

I know you can add to the GPO list for the OU but I wonder if it actually processes these extra ones you add? I have 2 GPO's applied to 1 OU. The computer is in the OU but when I do a gpupdate than a gpresult I only see the original GPO I set up and not the new one.

I am setting these GPO's up for a WSUS installation. The GPO I named WSUS and it enables downloads to occur daily in the evening and then apply them and there is a second setting setting the update to WSUS instead of to the internet.

I have it all applied and verified but on my client machines I only see the first GPO I set on this OU (not the WSUS one I just created). I have tried reboots and forcing it... no avail.

My only thought is could it be that in the first GPO its set to not configured and in the second one I have it set to enabled this can be causing a problem? I don't have any of the settings set to deny or block on this so I am not understanding why this isn't applying as it should.

Any thoughts or should i wait and I am just to impatient? its only been about 5 mins since I applied it to the OU to begin with but i thought the gpupdate forced it instantly.
 

A:Solved: WSUS - Multiple GPO's to one OU?

NM running 2 DC's here the second one had not propogated the change made on the first one but the gpupdate was querying the second server. Forcing the propogation to the 2nd server resolved the problem.

We have a new WSUS server running WSUS 3.0 sp1 on Windows Server 2008. I'm new to this so I was wondering if anybody would know it's it's capability be to deploy non-Microsoft installs and upgrades. I'm specificially thinking about Adobe products (mostly Adobe Acrobat). We will need to upgrade all of the computers on our network from version Acrobat 8 to version 9 pretty soon. Will there be a way to do that? Will there be a way to deploy updates when they come out? Or just one or the other? Is that pretty much up to the individual vendor? Do they have to make a special package that we put on the server? Or can we make one ourselves? Would that be hard?

I manage roughly 400 machines on a domain, each using Windows 7 Professional and our updates are pushed out using WSUS. We had one domain connected machine install update KB3035583 and is now being prompted to upgrade to Windows 10. I went into WSUS to block
the update as it would severely impact our production environment. However, KB3035583 doesn't show up when searching WSUS.
I've read that it shouldn't, and that domain joined computers won't recieve KB3035583. If that is true, then how is it that at least one machine on our domain has it installed and is now prompting for upgrade? How can I block this update on the rest of our
network?
