I am getting an error when running windows update on SBS 2008.

ebsadmin asked
I have a clients server that is unable to use windows update. The update console error is I8024400E. This happens every time. I tired running an sfc /scannow to no avail.

Even log shows a Service Control Manager error of "The Update Service Terminated Unexpectedly. It has done this 1,5xx times. Event ID 7034

So far no knowledge base links have helped. Any ideas? Anyone seen this and resolved it before?

have you tried clearing the cache & rebooting the server & trying again?
I think the error message was due to timeouts. The RAID controller was always at 100% activity. We have replaced the server since it had a litany of problems. This issue is not longer current and can be closed.


The only other comment was not a viable solution. We replaced the server and solved the issue that way.
