Error ID1601 error code 80070002 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Could not discover the state of the system. An unexpected exception was found:
    System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)
       at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo)

       at Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.ServerManagerModel.CreateLocalResult(RefreshType refreshType)
       at Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.ServerManagerModel.InternalRefreshModelResult(Object state)

    I have tried a number of updates KB94781 and KB979688 but none have resolved the problem of no roles and features etc.

    I am able to backup and I think WSUS is working but I cannot do a server update as requested by an alert.

    Can anyone point in a useful direction.

  • Hello,

    If my understanding is correct, Server Manager cannot display the server state and gives an error "Could not discover the state of the system. An unexpected exception was found". This is usually caused by servicing corruption in Windows.

    If you have a recent system state backup, you may restore the server back to an earlier point. Or, we can run System Update Readiness Tool to scan and fix the system corruption. Refer to the link below.

    System Update Readiness Tool that fixes Windows Update problems is available for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

    Advanced guidelines for diagnosing and fixing servicing corruption

    If it does not help, we will have to perform In-place upgrade to repair Windows.
