WSUS server node reset errors after adding a disk to download the updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have an issue with a new WSUS installation
    I did the W10 update (KB3159706) and the post installation WSUS fixes
    Until the everything was fine.

    I then added a 100GB disk to put the downloads onto.
    It ran out of space really quick +/-3GB left, so I've extended it to 200GB, but now it stays at 103GB free...

    I've ran AdamJ's wsus cleanupcript (version 2.11) but that keeps failing at 

    Executing DeclineSupersededUpdates
    Exception calling "GetUpdates" with "1" argument(s): "The operation has timed out"
    At C:\scripts\Clean-WSUS.ps1:1882 char:5
    +     $AdamjDeclineSupersededUpdatesUpdates = $AdamjWSUSServerAdminProxy.GetUpdate ...

    You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression.

    At C:\scripts\Clean-WSUS.ps1:1913 char:75
    +         $AdamjDeclineSupersededUpdatesUpdates | ForEach-Object -Process { $_.Dec ...

        + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvokeMethodOnNull
    All the rest runs fine...

    Except that I can't get into the WSUS anymore...

    Anybody got an idea?

  • Hi Candy,

    1. I never include the drivers ;-)

    2. updates are automatically approved

    3. already did that...

    The sollution for me was to uninstall everything, delete all downloaded updates, reinstall and use a "prpoer" SQL server I had onsite instead of using the WID, everything is running fine at the moment (for the last week)

  • What switch are you using of my script that gives you that error? -FirstRun? or -ScheduledRun (the one on the schedule)?

  • Hi Adam,

    Sorry, missed your answer...

    On the -Firstrun switch...

    (didn't check the scheduledRun)

    And the WSUS keeps getting the "Server node Reset" error

  • Hi HeensIt,

    Please check if the following steps is helpful:
    1. We may only check required Products and Classifcation (not recommended to check "drivers" in Classifications)
    2. Only approve needed updates by clients to save WSUS content folder's space.
    3. Reset WSUS: C:\program files\update services\tools>wsusutil reset

    Best Regards,

    Candy
