    Running the WSUS client diagnostics tool on one of my domain machines yields
    the following error:

    "VerifyWUServerURL() failed with hr=0x80190193

    The client does not have sufficient access rights to the requested server
    object."


    How do I obtain the sufficient access rights?

  2. This is a '403' error attempting to access the /selfupdate virtual directory
    on the WSUS server.

    It's caused by the absence of anonymous access permissions on the virtual
    server and/or on the virtual directory /selfupdate.

    My aplogies, but I am not very good with IIS, I am an apache guy. My
    clients now fails with

    "VerifyWUServerURL() failed with hr=0x800710dd
    The operation identifier is not valid."

    Well at least I am not getting the same error anymore...

  6. While adding Integrated Authentication to the list of virtual directories
    cited in the thread, that's a "workaround", and not a correct fix for the
    problem. The only virtual directories that should have IA enabled is
    WSUSAdmin (for obvious reasons) and selfupdate (for reasons we've not yet
    been able to determine).

    As noted in my other reply, this 0x800710dd error almost always only occurs
    on Windows XP, and in those instances, it is almost always due to a bad
    security descriptor.

    As for the correct permissions for the IIS virtual directories, see
