cannot save configuration because the server is still processing a previous configuration change RRS feed

  • Question

  • Server 2008 R2 SP1

    WSUS 3.2.7600.226

    2 x ESXi vcpu from xeon E5310 physical cpu

    1Gb shared iscsi san

    5GB ram

    "cannot save configuration because the server is still processing a previous configuration change" is displayed in Update Files & Languages screen for a week since changing to option "do not store update files locally; computers install from microsoft update"  Other snap-ins are unresponsive, intermittent console failure that requires close/reopen wsus or reset.   server has been restarted.  I see varying accounts of cause & fix.  Should I leave it alone as long as needed to process the change or what is considered a correct solution?

  • Hi tektotket,

    What operations can you perform now, could you un-install the WSUS role? Or everything of WSUS hangs.

    If you can un-install the WSUS role, we may un-install it, and re-install it from scratch.

    Best Regards,

  • Would that wipe out all the settings, products, computer groups, approvals, etc I've built?

  • Hi tekeotket,

    Yes, re-installation will wipe out all settings. Do you have worries about it? If not, you may re-install it and the original settings are easy to set up again.

    Best Regards,
