In my quest to get WSUS updates working I've gotten stuck at this stage. WSUS reports that it cannot download the updates and upon trying via Internet Explorer it reports a 404 error.
A txt file in the same directory appears fine. Here is the output from the log for one of the update exe files:
#Fields: date time s-sitename s-ip cs-method cs-uri-stem cs-uri-query s-port cs-username c-ip cs(User-Agent) sc-status sc-substatus sc-win32-status 2010-08-23 00:57:41 W3SVC1789576717 10.30.0.69 GET /Content/0E/DD7AE25A341E69544BA934B532CD270751C62A0E.exe - 8530 DOMAIN\username 10.30.0.20 Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+8.0;+Windows+NT+5.2;+Trident/4.0;+.NET+CLR+1.1.4322;+.NET+CLR+2.0.50727;+.NET+CLR+3.0.04506.30;+.NET+CLR+3.0.04506.648;+.NET+CLR+3.5.21022;+.NET+CLR+3.0.4506.2152;+.NET+CLR+3.5.30729) 404 2 1260
From this I gather that the error "404 2 1260" relates to:
404.2-Lockdown Policy Prevents This Request
Things I have tried:
- Checking that the MIME type is defined (it is)
- Checking the permissions on the folder so that it's said to read and not execute (it is)
- Allowing it via Web Service Extensions (i'm not sure how to do this, read this suggestion for things like perl/ASP scripts)
Does anyone have any other suggestions for what I could try? I'm quite new to Windows Server Administration, been using Linux for past 3 years or so and finding it much tougher!
Thanks for any help.
