SCCM 2012 – Windows 8 WSUS

Posted on

SCCM 2012 – Windows 8 WSUS – Managing your servers can streamline the performance of your team by allowing them to complete complex tasks faster. Plus, it can enable them to detect problems early on before they get out of hand and compromise your business. As a result, the risk of experiencing operational setbacks is drastically lower.

But the only way to make the most of your server management is to perform it correctly. And to help you do so, this article will share nine tips on improving your server management and fix some problem about windows, wsus, sccm, , .

We’re using SCCM 2012 to deploy Windows Updates on our domain, and our Windows 8 clients have started failing with error 80240438 when they try to update. Windows 7 clients update fine, but Windows 8 clients refuse to do anything. I’ve done a search online and it seems to only reference Windows InTune. Has anyone seen any similar behavior on Windows 8 machines? If we don’t get that error, we’re getting 80244021 which seems to indicate that the server can’t be found…. but they can resolve it just fine and our exceptions are defined on the proxy too. A bit stuck here!
