System Center Updates Publisher 4.5: "Proxy Authentication Required"

Hi,

I've been trying to use the DELL and Adobe Updates catalog with SCUP 4.5 and had no luck.

What I did:

    * Install SCUP 4.5 on the Central Site Server with a remote Database. I used the script to create a new database on the SQL Server the Central Site ConfigMgr Server uses.
    * I configured the ConfigMgr Site System that holds the Software Update Point to be the remote update server in SCUP.
    * The WSUS console was obviously installed, otherwise the SCUP installation wizard would ask me to do so.
    * In the SCUP Settings: Update Server I created a self-signed certificate. I forgot to the "trusted root certficate authorities" and "trusted publishers" on the other servers and clients in the first place, but contrary to the post from Jason Lewis (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/video/scup-publishing-an-update) I got no errors while trying to publish a DELL update, so I guess this applies only to self-created updates.

What I expected to happen:

    * I expected to be able to go to the SCUP Settings, Import List: Add Adobe and Dell.
    * Then I expected to be able to publish particular updates (either metadata-only or full) to the WSUS
    * Finally, I expected the updates to show up in the ConfigMgr Console and be able to deploy them.

What happened:

    * When I'm trying to download the catalogs (Import Updates) -> Bulk Catalog Import...

From the following locations:ftp://ftp.dell.com/catalog/DellSDPCatalogPC.cab
http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/AdobeFlashPlayerCatalog_SCUP.cab
ftp://ftp.dell.com/catalog/DellSDPCatalog.cab
http://armmf.adobe.com/arm-manifests/win/SCUP/Reader10_Catalog.cab

... the Log file C:\Users\myuser\AppData\Local\Temp\UpdatesPublisher.log states: "Download file: http://armmf.adobe.com/arm-manifests/win/SCUP/Reader10_Catalog.cab failed with message "The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required."

    * I'm also unable to download updates from the manually downloaded and installed .CAB from dell. (Same Error Message)

Further steps I tried:

    * Download the .CAB from dell and import it -> Works
    * Set the Publish Flag to one particular test update and deploy it: "Proxy authentication required"
    * Manually download the .cab files from a browser with my user (works)
    * Used the local system account with: "psexec /s cmd" -> iexplore <cab file location> -> Works.

According to this blog post from Jason Lewis, this shouldn't be a problem with 4.5 anymore:

I'd be glad for any help.

Thanks and kind regards.

I don't think you're problem is with SCUP as such. It sounds like an SCCM Updates problem I ran into last year. If I downloaded an update from a console that's not on the server it would work, but get the SCCM server to do that itself and I hit this proxy issue. I found a great blog article about it, but I can't seem to put my hands on it. However I did recall what to do to fix it.

There is a tool called upddwnldcfg.exe, which is in the <ConfigMgrInstallationFolder>\bin\i386\00000409 folder. IF you run this it kind of stamps the proxy info into the Server and it all starts to work.

Hope this is the issue you've seen as it's a real simple fix.

Cheers, Mike...
