  • WSUS Errors

    I am not sure if this should be in here or in the windows 8 forum, apologies if it is in the wrong place.

    I have built a brand new WSUS Server on a VM using 2012 R2 Datacentre

    I have a Windows 8.1 x64 VM running in virtualbox on my laptop as a test client.

    Whenever I instigate an update from the client the windowsupdate.log shows this warning:
    EP Got WSUS SelfUpdate URL: ""
    WARNING: Cab does not contain correct inner CAB file

    followed a few lines later by this:

    Followed by fourteen entries similar to this

    files appear to be synchronised by WSUS, automatic approvals are set and appear to be working, but nothing is being applied at the client.

    Any ideas?

    You might have to create and apply a group policy for the entire domain..once done then all clients will pick from there.

    any pretty straight forward

      Yes - you must make sure that the Group Policy points to the http// of the server and, most importantly, the correct port. You can see this information on the WSUS snap-in on the server.

      If the Group Policy is correctly configured check this page for basic troubleshooting tips from the client:

        Thanks for your suggestions, WSUS was configured correctly but wasn't authenticating with the web proxy so wasn't actually downloading any updates.

        Once I bypassed the proxy authentication it worked fine.
