  1. I have a win2k03 server SP1 fully patched. Running Exchange 2003 SP1 and IIS
    with OWA. This is the first of 3 servers that I will add to WSUS. This server
    is not the WSUS server. When I check the status of this server, the server's
    Last Detection Result is "Error: Agent failed detecting with reason:
    0x8024400a" I have researched this through Microsoft and have not found
    anything relevent. I have googled it and found mixed results/answers. What is
    the accepted practice/solution when you have this error? Also out of 32
    workstations that have been migrated to WSUS I have one XP PRO SP2 returning
    the error, Error: Agent failed detecting with reason: 0x8024400a. I am
    curious becase I thought this was a server related error. I would appreciate
    any feed back on this matter. thank you, ~Steve

  2. 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:

    btw... a simple search on this newsgroup for "8024400a" should turn up at
    least a dozen threads, all referencing this same KB article as the 'fix'.
