Windows machines deployed using MDT RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having issues with machines deployed using MDT getting windows updates. In particular, machines that are deployed using the Windows 10 v1607. Machines that have Windows 10 v1511 work. I update the reference image every month by creating a new image that updates from Windows update, sysprep, capture. I then use that new WIM to create new machines. This process worked with no issues on v1511. Now with v1607, I have no issues creating the references images, but after deployment the machines will not update. I have tried using the windows update troubleshooter, no change. I have tried repairing using DISM and sfc. These are the errors I am getting: 0x800704CF, 0x80240438, 0x8024a005. 

    We use Kaspersky to perform our software and windows updates on the network. 

    Anyone else experience issues like this and if so did you find a resolution?

    0x8024A005 WU_E_AU_NO_REGISTERED_SERVICE No unmanaged service is registered with AU.

    Could be network/driver related.

    Additionally, if you are using a WSUS server, I could also recommend cleaning the WSUS state from the registry:

    oShell.RegWrite "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\WUServer", "", "REG_SZ"
    oShell.RegWrite "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\WUStatusServer", "", "REG_SZ"
    oShell.RegWrite "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU\UseWUServer", 0, "REG_DWORD"

    Next step would be to gather the bdd.log and WindowsUpdate.log files and upload them to a public site like OneDrive and share the link here.
