Server 2012 R2 Clients will not update via WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're having a problem with our Server 2012 R2 servers not updating as of about a month ago.  I've read the article about KB2959977.  I don't know if that is the issue or not, but the timing seems about right.  If I go to install this update on the affected servers, I get a Window that just hangs at "Searching for updates on this computer".

    When I look at the Windows update log, I get repeated entries of:


    2014-08-04 10:22:03:030  896 5a4 Service UpdateNetworkState Ipv6, cNetworkInterfaces = 1

    With the number at the end of cNetworkInterfaces incrementing and decrementing every few minutes or so

    I've attempted deleting it from the actual WSUS server itself, stopping the service, deleting the Software Distribution folder, restarting the service, wuauclt /resetquthorization /detectnow and various other combinations to re-initialize but all I end up getting are these constant messages in the logs.


    Other interesting errors are:

    2014-08-04 08:50:23:644 2132 1140 CltUI FATAL: CNetworkCostChangeHandler::RegisterForCostChangeNotifications: CoCreateInstance failed with error 80004002
    2014-08-04 08:50:23:644 2132 1140 CltUI WARNING: RegisterNetworkCostChangeNotification: Error 80004002

    Anyone else seeing this sort of weird behavior?  Only happens on 2012 R2 servers.

  • Hello,

    In order to resolve the issue, we need get more information.

    What is the current version of your WSUS server? For WSUS 3.2, please apply KB3734608.

    How did you configure your GPO?

    Run nslookup WSUSservername, does the output show the correct IP address?
