I’ve been seeing issues with Windows updates where computers are getting errors checking in with WSUS. Out of 250 computers I have half a dozen that have update errors. The fix for these is to clear the Windows update cache.
Clearing the cache is straight forward.
- Open a command prompt as administrator
- run “net stop wuauserv”
- go to the windows folder and delete the SoftwareDistribution folder.
- run net start wuauserv
There is a Microsoft fixit you can use as well. Check out this link http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=971058 for more information.
