Domain controllers indeed don't have local administrators - you have to be a member of the Administrators group of the Domain itself.

Administrators group in Domain
Begin a member of this group will give you administrator access over all Domain Controllers.  Domain Admins are also a memver of this group, so if you are a Domain Admin, then you already have sufficient rights.

Domains admins are local administrator on Domain Controllers. Therefore, you don't have to make any further changes. Have you tried installing updates on DC?

This actually sounds like a UAC issue (User Account Control), but this is pretty much clutching at straws.

Try log in as DOMAIN\Administrator (i.e. the actual Administrator).  This account is not UAC limited by default.  If it works logged in Administrator, then it will confirm if this is a UAC issue or not.  The resolution to that would be to change the default domain controller policy to disable "User Account Control: Run all administrators in admin approval mode"

Turn off UAC for All Administrators

It's hard to think that WSUS would be the cause of the issue - all it does is present a list of updates to your WSUS Client.

Can you post some screenshots showing the error messages?

hi clayton

I think my problem ,Domain controller local admin ,because i dont any problem with other servers.

example. i log on my other win2012 terminal server like ts1\administrator then i can make all updateson this server.

But how i do on DC ,because there is no local admin ,i mean i cant log in DC1\administrator  for updates.

There is no local administrator - you cannot log on as a local administrator.

Please post some screenshots showing the errors  you are getting.

Here is your error code:

FATAL: CNetworkCostChangeHandler::RegisterForCostChangeNotifications: CoCreateInstance failed with error 80004002

From the looks of things, you have had this issue already:

You accepted multiple peoples answers as solutions.

Unfortunately, I have no first hand experience with this error code, so I am unsubscribing from this topic.  Hopefully, others can help.

Try reinstalling the Windows Update Agent on this server

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/windows-update-error-80004002

You should install from command line using  /quiet /norestart /wuforce

so  windowsupdateagent30-x64.exe /quiet /norestart /wuforce

You also will need to update your WSUS to support 2012
