Client error - 0x8024400a

Discussion in 'Update Services' started by Steve in distress, Sep 19, 2005.

  1. My WSUS install is about a week old. All clients and servers have reported
    in. I have one WinXP SP2 client that WSUS returns the error of Error: "Agent
    failed detecting with reason: 0x8024400a" I have searched for this error and
    previously posted a similar question but it was server based and that is
    resolved. I have been unable to find any information as to why I client
    returns this error.

  2. Searching this newsgroup for this error should turn up a dozen threads,
    including one I posted in just a week ago....

    From a post on 9/13 in the thread "computer has not reported status yet" in
    this newsgroup:

    The 0x8024400a error is directly related to a known issue with IIS and
    http.sys on Win2003Sp1 systems. Your observation of its appearance will be
    random as it's a transient error.

    The 'fix' is to obtain the hotfix referenced in this KB article:
