#SCCM #Microsoft #Cryptic #Patch #ac
An update was done on the server and some patches that were installed caused an issue in System Center Configuration Manager.

While the SUP (Software Updated Point) was throwing up fits in log files as well as the MP (Management Point) I started to see a slew of events in the statesys.log file that pointed to "Access Denied".

Being like any good Microsoft products the error was cryptic at best. A lot of the resources online pointed to removing the SUP and re-installing it, which didn't much. The issue was a bit more complex than that.

Eventually the logs pointed to Sys.Exceptions failure to communicate with WSUS. While this would indicate that the SUP and WSUS aren't communicating one might think to just remove SUP and re-install to get it to communicate. Nope, it wouldn't have any of it. Now if you know anything about SCCM you know it heavily relies on IIS.

Checking the IIS Pool and Sites everything look as it should. (WSUS, IIS, SUP) are all running on the same box, to avoid issues WSUS communicates on the secondary port option.

(If you plan to use SCCM with WSUS, never complete the post installation of WSUS) Let you the SUP do the configuration once you install it, but that's a different story.

All this fuckery to identify that the issue solely relies on IIS in the end.

- Remove SUP
- Remove WSUS
- Remove IIS
All this via the role management.
- Reboot

Some other steps you need to take into account is the manual removal of the WSUS Content, WID, inet to ensure you get a fresh installation again.
- Reboot again to make sure nothing is left.

Now you'd need to re-install all these roles back on the server. They all come with pre-requisite such as .NET 4.5, HTTP Activation etc... Which you'll need to select and so on.

You'll also want to make sure that once you've got everything installed, configured that within your IIS Application/Pool to set 32-Bit OFF especially if you are running on a 64bit OS when it comes to the .NET 4.5 else you'll run into exceptions with proxy, communication and port being actively refused.

I'm telling you these last 3 days to figured out what the hell happened wasn't fun.

This is the end of the United States as we know it. Prepare for a dictatorship under Trump.

Good luck American friends! Good luck! #ac

It's always nice to find an accessory to accommodates us well. Going to have to see how the NOMAD powerpack holds out at 9000mAh compared to the monstrous beast that the Jackery TITAN S is at 20,100mAh.

I'm an IT Specialist, Android Blogger and reviewer with a dash of social media!
Introduction

My name is Martin Guay, I reside in Ottawa, Canada. You may wonder why the name Cryovex for my Android tech blog, while interesting and unconventional, it's quite distinctive to me. This is a brand identity that I'm working with and hopefully grow.

You need to have fun in everything you do. If you don’t have fun at what you’re doing, then you’re might not have the needed passion and this might interfere with you giving the business 100%. Always work in a positive, interesting and engaging workplace, this will help keep you motivated to grow with the business.

I love technology, I love gadgets and I definitely am an Android fan! I've been in the tech industry for over 15 years and I love every aspect of it. On a daily basis, I deal with anything from desktops, laptops, server, cabling, switches and smartphone. I’ve grown with the industry and I know my fair share.

The tech aspect is only one face of the varied interests that I have. This brings me to talk about Android as a whole, not just the smartphone or tablet, but the entire world it encompasses. It’s a big part of why I became a blogger, social media guru, and tech addict. I don’t claim to know everything and I've made my fair share of mistakes like so many before me.

I have the pleasure of working alongside some fine people at Android Coliseum and they keep me entertained on a daily basis. It’s a really great family to be part of. It has enabled me to make contacts with a lot of different people, grow and learn more.

I write about all sorts of items that cross my path. It could be a smartphone, an app that a developer is recommended I check out or simply just an accessory that a vendor is sending out.

You can always reach me on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter! Why not click on my social profiles and follow me on my journey through the various reviews, blogs, videos I'll post?

Be warned, you may at times find content that will surely not be safe for work!

I'm good at what I do :)
