MBSA Scan hangs on scanning and does not complete RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to run the quarterly MBSA scans for the systems on the domain I manage from the domain controller, this is usually done using a batch file that runs MBSA 2.3. However this time whenever I run the scan it just gets stuck on "scanning" I left it for a whole weekend and this was still the case.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling MBSA but with no luck, does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this From the WindowsUpdate.log on the target machine i get the following but then nothing happens.

    Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
