Managing Windows Server 2012 with WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have many Windows Server 2008 R2 systems being managed by a local WSUS system.  However when I try 2 different Windows Server 2012 systems, it gives me Error code 800B0001.  I've seen forum entries talking about 2 KBs that are necessary to manage 2012 systems, but my WSUS system is completely up to date with all applicable maintenance.  In particular we have KB2720211, but not KB2734608.

    Is there something more we need to install or do to get this working?

    If your WSUS is installed on W2008R2 or lower, your WSUS should have
    Build .274. The error you posted, say to me, your WSUS is missing some
    Updates. Here you have a list with KBs and Build Numbers:

    WSUS 3.0 (SP2):     Build 3.2.7600.226
    WSUS 3.0 (SP2) + KB2720211:     Build 3.2.7600.251
    WSUS 3.0 (SP2) + KB2734608:     Build 3.2.7600.256
    WSUS 3.0 (SP2) + KB2828185:     Build 3.2.7600.262
    WSUS 3.0 (SP2) + KB2938066:     Build 3.2.7600.274

    And this image you will show the place for getting the correct Build:

    After your WSUS is on Build .274, restart the whole Server and now you
    can restart the Service WUAUSERV on your Clients/Servers.

    If the WSUS-Console is installed on other W2008R2 or lower or on W7 or
    lower, install all Patches too on this Machines and check the Build.

  • You need to apply KB2734608 (or preferably the latest WSUS patch available for v3.0SP2, such as KB2938066)

    Don [doesn't work for MSFT, and they're probably glad about that ;]

  • Mystery solved.  This was a pebcak issue.  I downloaded the 32-bit version of the KB, but my WSUS server is 64-bit.  Quite embarrassing.  Thank you for your patience.

  • Thanks for the nice list of potential updates to WSUS.  However for all but KB2938066 I get messages that the upgrade patch cannot be installed.  Most likely due to the upgrade patch not matching my version of the program.  Oddly enough although I have KB2720211 installed, my registry is showing Build 3.2.7600.226 rather than Build 3.2.7600.251.  

    The one KB I didn't try was KB2938066, since it is for 2012 and my WSUS server is running 2008 R2.

  • I've tried all 4 of the KBs listed above, and none of them will install.  I get the following error message from each of them (typing it in, since copy/paste isn't working for me):

    "The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program.  Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch"

    I know I have WSUS server installed on this system, and it should be at KB2720211 level according to the Update services screen (server version 3.2.7600.251).

    I've seen forum entries that talk about reindexing and other post-installation steps, but can't get any of the WSUS updates to work (and yes, I'm trying the installation on my WSUS server, not the clients in case you think that might have caused my problem).

    Thanks in advance for suggestions.

    Did you check the Build on Startpage from WSUS?

  • Yes.  That's where I got the server version.  I also checked the registry, but oddly enough it shows version 3.2.7600.226.  I checked hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Update Services\Server\Setup\VersionString.

    You get the error message for KB2734608 too? Can you restart the whole
    server?

  • Mystery solved.  This was a pebcak issue.  I downloaded the 32-bit version of the KB, but my WSUS server is 64-bit.  Quite embarrassing.  Thank you for your patience.

    Great, thanks for response.

    Your WSUS is now on Build .274 and it is working perfectly?
