Read through the posts in the newsgroup, it appears to be a
permissions setting issue on your self-update tree. There are several
posts that explain what you may need to check and/or change - but
start by ensuring that anonymous access is enabled on the virtual
directory, and that port 80 (if default installation) is accesible and
not being managed by another application or website...

The client and server diagnotic tools available for download at the
WSUS site should be of some assistance in clearing the issue up...

hi
i couldnt find any posting which helps me with my problem
anonymous access is enabled and port 80 is accessible(self-update tree
including)
every other client reports to wsus (os: xp sp 2, win 2000 sp4, windows
server 2003),
but just the windows server 2000 sp4 , where the wsus is installed doesn't
report

the client diagnostic tool stopped with this error message
VerifyWUServerURL() failed with hr=0x80072ee5
The URL is invalid
i couldn't find any matching error code.
best regards, michael

Can you browse to the server resources from IE on the WSUS server?
For example:
http://<servername>/iuident.cab
http://<servername>/selfupdate/iuident.cab
http://<servername>/clientwebservice/wusserverversion.xml

If not, it sounds like (in this case) that either you might have a DNS
resolution issue, or you're using host headers on the virtual server.

Also, some people have had success with these type scenarios by adding
127.0.0.1 to the list of IP Addresses on the virtual server, if the proxycfg
has set 'localhost' to be an internal proxy server.

Post by Lawrence Garvin
Can you browse to the server resources from IE on the WSUS server?
http://<servername>/iuident.cab
http://<servername>/selfupdate/iuident.cab
http://<servername>/clientwebservice/wusserverversion.xml
If not, it sounds like (in this case) that either you might have a DNS
resolution issue, or you're using host headers on the virtual server.
Also, some people have had success with these type scenarios by adding
127.0.0.1 to the list of IP Addresses on the virtual server, if the
proxycfg has set 'localhost' to be an internal proxy server.

hi
i couldnt find any posting which helps me with my problem
anonymous access is enabled and port 80 is accessible(self-update tree
including)
every other client reports to wsus (os: xp sp 2, win 2000 sp4, windows
server 2003),
but just the windows server 2000 sp4 , where the wsus is installed doesn't
report
the client diagnostic tool stopped with this error message
VerifyWUServerURL() failed with hr=0x80072ee5
The URL is invalid
i couldn't find any matching error code.
best regards, michael

Read through the posts in the newsgroup, it appears to be a
permissions setting issue on your self-update tree. There are several
posts that explain what you may need to check and/or change - but
start by ensuring that anonymous access is enabled on the virtual
directory, and that port 80 (if default installation) is accesible and
not being managed by another application or website...
The client and server diagnotic tools available for download at the
WSUS site should be of some assistance in clearing the issue up...

Okay.. let's go back to the /original/ error message.

It took some detailed and careful reading of your log file, and you're not
the first to make this error, and I'm not the first to /miss/ catching this

http:\\updateserver/selfupdate/wuident.cab: error 0x80072ee5
The URL is formed incorrectly, the slashes after http: need to be forward
slashes, and the WUA will choke on the URL if the slashes are not entered
correctly, thus your 0x80072ee5 error which transates to "Invalid URL",

Okay.. let's go back to the /original/ error message.
It took some detailed and careful reading of your log file, and you're not
the first to make this error, and I'm not the first to /miss/ catching

http:\\updateserver/selfupdate/wuident.cab: error 0x80072ee5
The URL is formed incorrectly, the slashes after http: need to be forward
slashes, and the WUA will choke on the URL if the slashes are not entered
correctly, thus your 0x80072ee5 error which transates to "Invalid URL",

Can you browse to the server resources from IE on the WSUS server?
http://<servername>/iuident.cab
http://<servername>/selfupdate/iuident.cab
http://<servername>/clientwebservice/wusserverversion.xml
If not, it sounds like (in this case) that either you might have a DNS
resolution issue, or you're using host headers on the virtual server.
Also, some people have had success with these type scenarios by adding
127.0.0.1 to the list of IP Addresses on the virtual server, if the
proxycfg has set 'localhost' to be an internal proxy server.

hi
i couldnt find any posting which helps me with my problem
anonymous access is enabled and port 80 is accessible(self-update tree
including)
every other client reports to wsus (os: xp sp 2, win 2000 sp4, windows
server 2003),
but just the windows server 2000 sp4 , where the wsus is installed doesn't
report
the client diagnostic tool stopped with this error message
VerifyWUServerURL() failed with hr=0x80072ee5
The URL is invalid
i couldn't find any matching error code.

Read through the posts in the newsgroup, it appears to be a
permissions setting issue on your self-update tree. There are several
posts that explain what you may need to check and/or change - but
start by ensuring that anonymous access is enabled on the virtual
directory, and that port 80 (if default installation) is accesible and
not being managed by another application or website...
The client and server diagnotic tools available for download at the
WSUS site should be of some assistance in clearing the issue up...

hi
i can browse the server resources, the link
http://<servername>/clientwebservice/wusserverversion.xml
gives me this.
- <SusServerVersionInfo>
- <Version>
<Major>2</Major>
<Minor>0</Minor>
<Build>3790</Build>
<QFE>2472</QFE>
</Version>
<Description>Software Update Services Server</Description>
</SusServerVersionInfo>

i added 127.0.0.1 to the list of ip adresses on the virtual server but i
still got the error in the system event log:
source windows update agent
event id: 16
Unable to Connect: Windows is unable to connect to the automatic updates
service and
therefore cannot download and install updates according to the set schedule.
Windows will continue to try to establish a connection.

any further suggestions to solve my problem?
best regards michael pilz
