I've got one server that's refusing to update from our WSUS server, all our
other servers are updating OK and this one updated a month ago fine.

In the WindowsUpdate.log I get the error "EEHndlr WARNING: Failed to
populate ServiceStartup entries in Cache: error 0x80070002"

If I run the WSUS Client Diagnostics Tool I get the error:-

"GetAUSettingsRegistry(false, TEXT("SusServerVersion"), &dwSusVersion)
failed
with hr=0x80070002
The system cannot find the file specified."

I've tried renaming the "%Systemroot%\system32\wbem\Repository" folder

I've tried renaming the "%WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution" folder

Anyone come across this before and knows how to fix it?

Thanks

Hi,

That didn't fix it unfortunately but I found the answer here:-

http://blogs.technet.com/emeasetup/archive/2009/03/17/eehndlr-warning-failed-to-populate-servicestartup-entries-in-cache-error-0x80070002.aspx

I needed to delete the registry key:-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Setup\ServiceStartup
