Windows Update Access Denied server 2008 Standard R2, tried everything

    Question

  • I have tried every suggestion I could find. Ive tried reseting the permissions with the subinacl and Ive scanned for malware, there is no firewall or AV software. I have tried install the readiness tool but that gives me a 80070005 error. Ive tried installing updates manually and get access denied. Basically anything that has to do with MS says access denied but I can install anything else.

    I have also tried replacing the items in the servicing folder as well as changing the owner.

    I don't know what else to do, my event viewer is full of WUSA errors....access denied

    HELP please :)

  • Hello Ebudd,
    I have some questions:

    • Does it appear  the same WSUS error, repeated, or different in Event Viewer ?
    • Could you post WSUS error showing in Event Viewer ?
    • Did you already check for any Domain or Local Group Policy preventing WSUS updates ?
    • Did you already reset Windows Update Agent ? TechNet GalleryDOS Script to Reset Windows Update Agent

    Bye,
    Luca

  • Yes many WUSA errors. And when i try to run a downloaded stand alone update I get the 80070005 error.

    I checked the policies to no avail

    I did the Windows Update Agent DOS script....nothing changed

  • Hello Ebudd,
    could you explain "Still nothing" ? Did you follow KB2773898 ? What about the result ? Is BITS service working ?

    About the error Description: Windows update  could not be installed because of error 2147944018 "Another installation is already in progress I posted wrong link; I made a correction above and here"Only one instance of wusa.exe is allowed to run" error when trying to install a Windows Standalone Update package.; check Windows Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\InProgress; if it is there then copy it to your desktop first then delete that key. 

    Bye,
    Luca

  • I treid every suggestion, twice. I checked in the reg and I dont even have the key "InProgress".

    and the above KB2773898 yielded   "Winrs error: The WinRM client cannot process the request. If the authentication scheme is different from Kerberos, or if the client computer is not joined to a domain, then HTTP transport must be used"
