WSUS Error 8024400D

8,184 Views
Last Modified: 2016-07-28
Good Afternoon,

I have 20 Servers so far that wont register with their WSUS Server (WSUS Standalone Config)

I have read several MS Technet articles and have tried various recommendations including:
----------------------------------------
1. Rename the Windows Update related temporary folder:
net stop wuauserv
ren %windir%\SoftwareDistribution %windir%\SoftwareDistribution.old
net start wuauserv

2. Download and install the latest WUAgent
3. Rename the catroot2 folder:
net stop cryptsvc
ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 oldcatroot2
net start cryptsvc
-------------------------------------------

Removed The Client ID Reg Entries from the registry and Reset Authorization and Tried to Detect.  No Go...

I can download the CAB Files if I copy and paste the URL's into the Browser on the servers that have the issue.  

Genuinely Stumped here..

Here is the last Entry from the log:
