    Hallo.

    Das KB4038792 hat auf einem Server 2012R2 den WSUS ausser funktion gesetzt.
    Es ließen sich keine Updates mehr suchen.

  2. Triumph says:

    KB4038777 caused all i.e. shortcuts to fail

  3. Marco says:

    KB4038792 changes some values in the Web.config file on the WSUS Server (“C:\Program Files\Update Services\WebServices\ClientWebService\Web.config”).

    If you alredy have a lot of updates you probably changed the value “” to something like ” ” to prevent Errors on the Clients WindowsUpdate.log.

    After installing the Update “KB4038792” on the WSUS Server the value “maxCachedUpdates” in the “web.config” file is reset to “”.

    Thus the error below is generated in the WindowsUpdate.log on the Clients while searching for Windows Updates using the WSUS Server.

    WARNING: SyncUpdates failure, error = 0x8024400D, soap client error = 7, soap error code = 300, HTTP status code = 200
    WARNING: WU client failed Searching for update with error 0x80244007

    You have to take over the Ownership on the “Web.config” file on the WSUS Server and Change the value back to ” ” for example to get rid of these Errors.

    best regards
    Marco
