Cannot refresh Server Manager, windows repositories corrupt RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm experiencing the following issue on my Windows 2008 server (Standard, x64, SP1):
    When I refresh the server manager in order to view the installed roles and features, server maanger throws an unexpected error: "Exception from HRESULT:0x800F0818"

    After viewing similar topics on this forum and reading my event manager, it became clear there was something wrong with the windows repositories in c:\windows\servicing\packages so I ran the System Update Readiness Tool (KB947821). Afterwards I checked the log file @ c:\windows\logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log. Here it it's contents:

    =================================

    Some packages are corrupt - I've tried reinstalling KB969897 but the patch doesn't seem to be valid for my system anymore (read: my IE has been updated).

    Could somebody forward me a valid link to the necessary files please? I've found some links on this forum already but they appear to be outdated.

    Please visit the following steps to fix the problem:

     

    1.     Take control over the folder: %systemroot%\Windows\Serivces\Packages, run the following commands in elevated privileges:

     

    Takeown /F C:\Windows\Servicing\Packages /D y /R

    Cacls C:\Windows\Servicing\Packages /E /T /C /G “UserName”:F

     

    2.     Download the KB969897 Files for the missing files, then unpack the KB980182 using the following command:

     

    Expand –F: * Update KB969897.msu x:\DestinationDirectory

     

    After you expand you will see a UpdateKBXXXX.cab File. Expand it as well:

     

    Expand -F:* UpdateKBXXXX.CAB x:\DestinationDirectoryCAB

  • I just perfomed the actions you requested

    1. I ran the commands (also checked if I have ownership over the files + Full Control = OK)
    2. I downloaded the msu from the link - expanded it and then expanded the cab it produced yet again
    3. I then grabbed, renamed and copied the files to the servicing/packages dir (with overwrite - old ones were corrupt anyway)

    No change in server manager (also after reboot) - I ran the system update readiness again - the checksur logfile now produced:

    Please note that the error has changed - the expected filename is different - 6.1.1.0 instead of 6.0.1.0 - after some checking I discovered that the link you gave me is actually for server 2008 R2 - so I found it prudent to download KB969897 again from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=faac92d4-4a2b-4bb5-8bd1-1519a9fa8147&displaylang=en - redid all steps - now it produced:

    ============================================

    So basically both versions of the patch are incorrect? I would need the correct version of the mum & cat file in order to continue ...

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    The problem has been solved by expanding the cab from the patch above, renaming the mum and cat files and placing them in the servicing\packaging directory.

    Thanks a lot Dale!
