Standalone FCS client on Windows Server 2003 not detecting any updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Server 2003 Standard in a DMZ on which I replaced the old virusscanner with a FCS client. Version 1.5.1996 from KB2508823.

    The client installs fine, but no updates can be found, so the definition files are stuck on version 1.0.0.0 from somewhere in 2006.

    I also tried the original clientsetup.exe from 1.5.1937, actually started with that, then find out I had the old client version so took KB2508823.

    The machine has internet access since I ran Windows Updates just before installing the FCS client.
    Eventlog shows nothing at all on this it seems.

    I hope anyone can direct to somewhere to figure out why it won't update.

  • Hi Tom,
     
    Thank you for your post.

    By default, Windows have enabled Windows Update not Microsoft Update, you need to enable Microsoft Update for Microsoft product like FCS refer to KB967512 or KB901037.

    If there are more inquiries on this issue, please feel free to let us know.

  • Hi,

    Do you use a proxy to access to internet ? If so, this issue can apprear because the localsystem account is unable to access the Internet due to a lack of proper proxy server configuration. So try this : from a CMD window, type this command line proxycfg –u

  • No, no proxy is used at all. I will try the command just to verify settings.

    Update: that failed with a error 87: The parameter is incorrect.

    Error writing proxy settings. (87) The parameter is incorrect.

    Migration failed with error. (87) The parameter is incorrect.
