I recently added some new Windows Server 2012 R2 servers to my environment for a project I’m working on. So far I really like this operating system, and I’m getting used to where everything is. That being said, I have ran into a few issues and one of them is an error I’ve been getting when trying to update these servers from my Windows 2008 R2 WSUS server.
<—more!—>
When I check for updates I get an error numbered 800B0001 that looks like this:

To fix this error here is what you have to do:

  • On your WSUS server install  WSUS-KB2720211-x64 and WSUS-KB2734608-x64 
  • Open your WSUS management console and manually perform a  synchronization
  • Next, on your affected servers run the following:

net stop wuauserv
rd /s /q %windir%softwaredistribution
net start wuauserv

The issue should be fixed now. If you have a lot of servers/workstations with this issue you might want to run those commands as a part of a start up script.
