WSUS web services crashes every Patch Tuesday RRS feed

  • Question

  • My WSUS server is completely managed by SCCM 2012 R2. For some reason, every 2nd Tuesday of the month, WSUS will crash with error codes 12002, 12012, 12022, 12032, 12042, 12052, and 12072 five to six times over the night exactly one hour apart (I have a powershell script that fires on one of the event codes that sends me an email and does an IISReset).  Last night, it crashed at 10:12, 11:12, 12:12, 1:12, 2:12, and 3:12.. then it stopped crashing.

    IISReset usually gets it up and running again, but this is happening every month always on Patch Tuesday.  I have no idea where to look to see what it's trying to do at 10:12 PM or what SCCM is telling it to do.  Has anyone run into an issue like this?

  • Hi Jonathan,

    It could be a directory permissions issue: try the permission, try https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd939790(v=ws.10).aspx

    One solution I saw specifically list "The solution was to give *WRITE* access to Network Service on the folder
    %systemroot%\Temp "
