WSUS won't accept IE7 because of EULA download failure

IE7 showed up in the list of not approved updates in WSUS on a 2003 SBS Standard.

Following error occurs:

The End User License Agreement (EULA) for this update has not been accepted.

Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.WsusObjectNotFoundException: The specified item could not be found in the database.
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.BaseApi.LicenseAgreement.GetById(Guid id)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.BaseApi.Update.GetLicenseAgreement()
   at Administration.Updates.EulaDialog.Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.BaseApi.LicenseAgreement.GetById(Guid id)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.BaseApi.Update.GetLicenseAgreement()
   at Administration.Updates.EulaDialog.Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

How can I rectify this?

Change the update to approved, then on the next pop-up there should be an EULA that you agree to.  You should only need to accept the EULA once on WSUS console.

That does not work because it obviously cannot download the EULA. On the status page I see that 1 file with 0.03MB is about to download but for some reason it does not. So without having the EULA downloaded I cannot approve it.

Try running:

wsusutil /reset

You'll find this tool in the \Program Files\Update Services\Tools folder.

What this does is check every line in the DB against the files it has; anything missing is redownloaded.

Keep in mind that everyone under the Sun is downloading this via AU or WSUS so it may take some time.

A very long time.  I had the same issue.  Ended up having to wait quite a long whiles, then it resolved itself.

What exactly is a long time? Just did that reset thing and now I have 1,118 files to download totalling 6+ GB! Help!!!

Domim, I didn't do the reset.  I think my download took approximately 2 hours for the Eula (on a T1 connection).  But 6 GB, egh!

OK, seems to "download" from the existing files. Got one gig in a few seconds. Will wait for a while...

2 hours would be fine, I have it sitting for days already...

It is getting worse: further updates seem to get stuck by the EULA thing. Have 40MB to download and nothing is happening for hours. PLEEEEASE help!

Found the solution: http://www.jsifaq.com/SF/Tips/Tip.aspx?id=10575.

I have quotas enabled on this drive and the user for WSUS also had it on and that got too much, of course...

Damn, so simple...
