Re: Cannot save configuration because the server is still processinga previous configuration change

Discussion in 'Update Services' started by Lawrence Garvin, Sep 9, 2005.

  1. I have a followup to this message, with some additional details describing
    exactly what I believe caused the situation in my case.

    (1) Update Services did not start properly at system startup. (Not directly
    a cause, but a contributing factor in this scenario.)

    (2) Manually started Update Services, which would normally, then, start the
    BITS service (from Manual mode).

    (3) Before the BITS service got the chance to start up, I had reconfigured
    it as Disabled. (Had Update Services started properly, then BITS would have
    already been running and this issue would have never occurred at this

    (4) This caused the Update Services service to fail its own startup,
    ostensibly because dependent services did not start up.

    This happened to me again, just moments ago. (I'm doing some research, so
    I'm intentionally disabling BITS to reduce the overhead on my system since I
    don't actually need to download the content.)

    What I found was the Update Services service stopped. I restored BITS to
    Manual mode, restarted the Update Services service, allowed the BITS service
    to start up fully, then set the BITS service to disabled and stopped the
    BITS service, leaving the Update Services service running. Restarted the
    WSUS Admin Console and the "saving settings" message was reset.

  2. I removed WSUS and reinstalled it. That cleared up the "please wait while
    you settings are saved" situation. I scheduled a synchronization and the
    synchronizations succeeded. All was well until I pared the language
    selection down to English. Right at that point, the "please wait while your
    settings are saved problem" reintroduced itself. I will see if the synch
    goes through tonight.
