My server has stopped updating the wsus catalogs.

The unhelpful error i am getting is as follows:


TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSyncWebServices.ServerSync.ServerSyncProxy' threw an exception. ---> System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send.
at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Internal.ClassFactory.CreateInstance(Type type, Object[] args)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSync.ServerSyncLib.GetWebServiceProxyInternal(UpdateServerConfiguration serverConfig, WebServiceCommunicationHelper webServiceHelper, Boolean useCompressionProxy)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSync.ServerSyncLib.GetWebServiceCompressionProxy(UpdateServerConfiguration serverConfig, WebServiceCommunicationHelper webServiceHelper)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSync.CatalogSyncAgentCore.RetrieveSubscriptionData()
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSync.CatalogSyncAgentCore.ExecuteSyncProtocol(Boolean allowRedirect)


I really dont want to have to uninstall the whole thing.

Any ideas?

thanks

c:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools>wsusutil /checkhealth
Unknown command. The following commands are known:
        help
        checkhealth
        configuressl
        configuresslproxy
        deletefrontendserver
        listinactiveapprovals
        removeinactiveapprovals
        export
        healthmonitoring
        import
        listfrontendservers
        movecontent
        reset
        usecustomwebsite
        listunreferencedpackagefolders

Bit odd as it gives checkhealth in the list

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Hey!

Had a similar problem - but not with the wsusutil.
Maybe it will help:
