WSUS Export Fatal Error - unable to export matadata RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scenario - Using WSUS on Disconnected network using Export & import Servers. previously using w2k3 on both the systems & wsus was running nicely. recetly we have upgraded the servers to 2k8 & I am unable to use WSUS.

    As the server is the new one & I dont have any access to my previous servers. Ihave started from the begining. (I am using wsus for only updating Operating Systems Only )

    I am getting Fatal Error on the export server while exporting the .log & .cab file error as follows

    Export failed to export updates. Please look at the log file for error details.
    Fatal Error: Error in the application.

    its creating the .log file but not creating the .cab file.

    I have surfed many forums & got various informations & apllied many of them as follows. What i understood its because of the heavy Data. 

    1. applied the following patch : Windows6.0-KB2813430-x86.msu (No Results)
    2. updated the .net frame work to the most recent one NDP452-KB2901907-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU
    3. Applied the following which found on one forum - (Created the config file)                                                                     Quick solution (thanks Yuvaraj Tamil Mani):
       
      ==> Install .Net 4 on the WSUS server from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851
       ==> Create a file named wsusutil.exe.config under "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools" folder.
       ==> Copy the following code in to the file
       ********
       <configuration>
         <startup>
            <supportedRuntime version="v4.0.30319"/>
         </startup>
      </configuration>
       ********
       ==> Run the export and it will complete even if the size is bigger than 4GB.
       ==> Once the export is done, remove the wsusutil.exe.config file.

    Still the result is the same....fatal error

    Only thing remaining is upgrade to sever 2012... which is beyond the scope.

    Please help me out get rid of this.

  • Hi,

    Have you installed KB2828185 ?

    If no, please install it on the WSUS server,

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2828185

    Then we can use the following command to export and import update,

    wsusutil.exe export export.xml.gz export.log
    wsusutil.exe import import.xml.gz import.log

    Best Regards.

  • Dear Steven,

    thanks for the help I have exported the file..

    Updates are being exported. Please do not stop this program.
    All updates are successfully exported.

    But not able to find the cab file...

    or

    just one file (export.xml.gz) is enough...will import it to import server & revert back

    Thanks again

  • make sure you're doing the export through an elevated command prompt with admin rights to a location with no file permission restrictions

    maybe your AV is removing the .cab file, check your AV logs

  • Hi,

    >>just one file (export.xml.gz) is enough

    Yes. The import command just need this file.(Metadata)

    Best Regards.

  • Dear Mr. Steven,

    With the help of below command I have downloaded the “export.xml.gz” and “export.log”

    wsusutil.exe export export.xml.gz export.log

    But what command should I try for exporting downloaded above files.

    wsusutil.exe import export.xml.gz export.log

    Above command is correct?

    Please help me to resolve.
