Question : Cannot get MBSA to successfully check for Security Updates
I’ve a network running Windows 2003 Server Standard, and Windows XP Pro clients. No Matter what I’ve tried I get errors when trying to scan client machines for Security Updates.
If I don’t check the “Configure computers for Microsoft Update and scanning prerequisites” box I get the following error:
“Computer has an older version of the client and security database demands a newer version. Current version is and minmum required version is 220.127.116.1178.”
If I check the “Configure computers for Microsoft Update and scanning prerequisites” box I get the following error:
“An error occurred while scanning for security updates. (0x80070002)”
I can’t find much help on the web about these errors so I thought I’d ask you guys – any ideas?
Solution: Cannot get MBSA to successfully check for Security Updates
In that link above I sent you…Have you tried:
“In one case this happed on a Windows XP SP2 computer after it was added to a Windows 2003 domain and the computer was restarted twice (once as part of the procedure for adding the computer to the domain and an extra one).
The relevant part of the Default Domain Policy that caused this is shown in condensed form below:
User Rights Assignment
Impersonate a client after authentication .
Resolution: Change the above policy setting for Impersonate a client after authentication to: Administrators, , SERVICE.
Restart the workstation twice (once to pick up the change in Group Policy and again to be affected by it at Windows startup).”
