WU Client failed searching for update with error 0x8024000b RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a few workstations that are no longer reporting to WSUS. I noticed the issue while trying to deploy the latest version of Java via SolarWinds Patch Manager back in April/May. We started troubleshooting Patch Manager, but the problem appears to be with the clients/WSUS. Our environment consists of W2K8 R2 servers and Windows 7 workstations. Can someone please take a look at the below windows update log entries from today to see what is going on?

    Thanks,

    Chad

  • Hi HTCIT,

    Check if after doing the following steps could work:

    1. rename the Spupdsvc.exe file:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/kb/958040

    2. Reset windows update components:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058

    3. Rename SoftwareDistribution folder:

    In cmd, net stop wuauserv;

    Rename C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder;

    In cmd, net start wuauserv.

    Best Regards,

    Anne

    I use patch manager and I have had to remove the contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder when generating a new certificate for WSUS 3rd party software. So, I only did step 3 and this has worked for me in the past. I don't rename the folder, I just stop wuauserv , delete the contents, then start again and it all works. I have had to do this on two occasions so far. Luckily PatchManager provides a mechanism where I can do this to the workstations from the PatchManager console. It is on the Windows Update Agent Maintenance and Repair and the check box is called Delete Software Distribution Folder and sub-folders.
