Reset Server Node using WSUS Cleanup Wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    I set up a new WSUS Server running on Server 2012. Everything works fine with the WSUS system except of the WSUS cleanup wizard. If I try to launch it, the MMC console crashes and the following event is logged in the event viewer:

    The WSUS administration console has encountered an unexpected error. This may be a transient error; try restarting the administration console. If this error persists,

    Try removing the persisted preferences for the console by deleting the wsus file under %appdata%\Microsoft\MMC\.


    System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception -- Access is denied

    Source
    System.Windows.Forms

    Stack Trace:
       at System.Windows.Forms.Control.MarshaledInvoke(Control caller, Delegate method, Object[] args, Boolean synchronous)
       at System.Windows.Forms.Control.Invoke(Delegate method, Object[] args)
       at Microsoft.UpdateServices.UI.SnapIn.Wizards.ServerCleanup.ServerCleanupWizard.OnCleanupComplete(Object sender, PerformCleanupCompletedEventArgs e)

    We are using an external SQL database and WSUS is running on port 80. WSUS is set up with an additional website in IIS. I already tried to set up a new WSUS Server + database but the Problem still exists.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thank you!

  • We have changed the default WSUS port to port 80.

    How exactly did you do this?

    Besides we are using a seperate site in IIS for our WSUS content.

    You **CANNOT** do this! Nor is there (forgive my impertinence) any rational reason for trying to do so.

    So there is the "Default Web Site" and "WSUS Administration" site.

    But at least now we know why it's broken.

    Why do you mean this would be the reason for the failure? WSUS installation wizard is aksing you to create another website in IIS instead of using the default one.
