Windows Update Error 80244019

    Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    My Boss has me redoing servers from scratch with new installs of Server 08 R2 .. one server keeps giving me trouble though ..

    Everything works fine but now for some reason I keep getting the Windows Update error 80244019 ..

    I have tried stoping and starting the services, I have run scans on it and everything checks out ..

    Any thoughts or advice ??

    thanks ..


    I should also note that the server only has the remote users role installed on it .. nothing else ..

  • Ok I am getting closer to getting it working i think ..

    I went into the regedit and found that the WUServer and WUStatusServer are set for a server here at the office and now the default ..

    so now i just need to know what the default values for those are , so i can reset them ..

  • Hello Dave,

    thank you for the advice , i checked and no it was not installed which is strange seeing how I just redid the server and had all the updates installed ..

    One thing i did find out is that all the servers here at the office are not updating there all getting the same error message and the registry keys seem to be pointing off to 2003 server ..

    as far as i can tell there is no update server running on it or anything ..

    so not sure why everything is pointed to there ..

    but please keep the advice coming .. thanks alot ..

    Hello,

    As your servers are pointing to a 2003 server for updates, I think that it should be WSUS settings applied via group policies.

    Please use rsop.msc and gpresult to check applied group policies. More if you ask them here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverGP/threads

  • After running you should check the %SYSTEMROOT%\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file for errors.

  • Hello,


    Agree with Mr X. There probably is a policy to redirect clients to a WSUS server while the WSUS server does not exist. You need to DISABLE the policy "Specify intranet Microsoft update service location" so the client will connect to Microsoft to check for updates.


    Check this:

    Configure Automatic Updates by Using Group Policy
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc720539(v=WS.10).aspx


    If this policy is already disabled, or the machine is in a container without policy for WSUS, please reset the registry value UseWUServer = dword:0x0 , or delete the entire registry key HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate which will revert the WUAgent to the original installed behavior of Windows Updates.


    If you have any other questions or concerns regarding WSUS, feel free to post in WSUS Forum @ http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverGP/threads

    Thanks
    ZHANG

  • I had the same error on server 2012, just go to GPO, Windows update,  and disable, "specify intranet Microsoft update service location"

  • might be related.   I followed these instructions to get my servers working as Jenkins nodes.  

    "

    Hudson requires full access to WBEM Scripting Locator (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID{76A64158-CB41-11D1-8B02-00600806D9B6}). Default for administrators group is just read.
    Change permissions for administrators group to "Full Control".
    Launch 'regedit.exe' as 'Administrator'
    Find the following registry key: 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID{76A64158-CB41-11D1-8B02-00600806D9B6}'   (hint: locate HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID then use find "76A64158-CB41-11D1-8B02-00600806D9B6"
    Right click and select 'Permissions'
    Change owner to administrators group.
    Change permissions for administrators group. Grant Full Control.
    Change owner back to TrustedInstaller (user is "NT Service\TrustedInstaller")
    Restart Remote Registry Service

    "

    Following these instructions DID allow me to get my server attached as a Jenkins node, but for what ever reason After following the given instructions I tried to do the windows update and got the update error 80244019.  I checked the CBS.log file and saw reference to the TrustedInstaller service.  I went back to the registry and set the owner of the key shown above to Administrators and my windows update started working.
