Even though this thread is old, I give a possible solution to the 80072EE6 error code for Windows Update (WSUS) because it is my hope that someone will see this and my "fix" will work for them.

Step: 1 (Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7) create a registry update file using the following settings (remove comments and other instructional typing):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"WUServer"="http://Your WSUS Server" (Example: http://192.168.150.5 Be sure to include the "HTTP://)
"WUStatusServer"="http://Your WSUS Server" (This should be a duplicate of the one above)

"AcceptTrustedPublisherCerts"=dword:00000001
"ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]

Unless you KNOW what you are doing, leave this section as-is:
"AUOptions"=dword:00000004
"AUPowerManagement"=dword:00000001
"AutoInstallMinorUpdates"=dword:00000001
"DetectionFrequencyEnabled"=dword:00000000
"EnableFeaturedSoftware"=dword:00000000
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000000
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"RebootRelaunchTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000000
"RebootWarningTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000000
"RebootRelaunchTimeout"=dword:000000f0
"RescheduleWaitTimeEnabled"=dword:00000000
"RescheduleWaitTime"=dword:0000001e
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000023
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001
"IncludeRecommendedUpdates"=dword:00000001
"NoAUShutdownOption"=dword:00000001
"NoAUAsDefaultShutdownOption"=dword:00000001

Merge the file into the rgistry

Step 2: Create a batch file and copy and paste the following:

ECHO OFF
CLS
REM This prorgam will clear the Windows Update files and folders from the %windrive%\SoftwareDistribution
REM directory. Then it will clean the registry of the Windows Update settings and re-apply them.
REM Once this is done, it will call for the WSUS server to rebuild the Windows Update folder structure.

ECHO This program will clear the Windows Update Files and Folders.
ECHO It will reset the Registry entries and re-start the Windows
ECHO Update by calling the WSUS server for Updates. Once started,
ECHO DO NOT cancel the program or damage to the Windows OS
ECHO installation may occur.
ECHO If you do not want this program to run, press Ctrl-C NOW.
ECHO Otherwise,
Pause

REM This part checks to make sure the SoftwareDistribution folder exists
REM if it does not exist, the program exits
IF EXIST %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\ReportingEvents.log GOTO Continue
Echo The Folder SoftwareDistribution does not exist or is empty. Exiting...
ping -n 11 127.0.0.1 >NUL
exit

REM This part deletes the contents of the "%windrive%\SoftwareDistribution" folder and removes it
:continue
c:
net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1 >NUL
rd %systemroot%\softwaredistribution /S /Q


REM This part removes Registry keys associated with Windows Update
cd c:\
if exist %systemdrive%\SUSClientReset.log del SUSClientReset.log
reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v PingID /f > %systemdrive%\SUSClientReset.log 2>&1
reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v AccountDomainSid /f >> %systemdrive%\SUSClientReset.log 2>&1
reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientId /f >> %systemdrive%\SUSClientReset.log 2>&1
reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientIDValidation /f >> %systemdrive%\SUSClientReset.log 2>&1

REM Windows 7 key

reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v LastRestorePointSetTime /f >> %systemdrive%\SUSClientReset.log 2>&1

REM This part renames the Windows Update log file
C:
cd %systemroot%
IF EXIST windowsupdate_log.old del windowsupdate_log.old
ren WindowsUpdate.log WindowsUpdate_log.old

REM This part restarts windows update services
net start wuauserv
net start bits
goto comp

:comp
REM this part runs the Windows Update and rebuilds all folders
wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow
wuauclt.exe /reportnow /detectnow



REM this part says GOODBYE
Exit

If you use any of the above, you do so at your own risk. I have successfully run this batch file over 100 times and it works for me. I suggest that you try this on ONE CLIENT before using it on the rest. This has completely resolved our problems with clients that shows the dreaded 80072EE6 error code.

Outstanding! Thanks for posting. Your advice fixed my WSUS issues that I have been trying on and off for months to fix. I had to specify the WSUS port on the URL lines (e.g. http://server:8530), and I had to manually run the wuauclt.exe commands at the end because it didn't seem like the batch file was processing all the way through (I haven't tried to find out if this is true), but no matter what you posted was a huge time saver for me and has finally enabled me to actually use WSUS. You da man!

Even though this thread is old, I give a possible solution to the 80072EE6 error code for Windows Update (WSUS) because it is my hope that someone will see this and my "fix" will work for them.

If you use any of the above, you do so at your own risk. I have successfully run this batch file over 100 times and it works for me. I suggest that you try this on ONE CLIENT before using it on the rest. This has completely resolved our problems with clients that shows the dreaded 80072EE6 error code.

This worked for me in 2014 - running Windows 2003 SP2 - thanks.
