WSUS on Windows 2012


After fresh install of WSUS on Windows 2012 there were many errors complaining that files could not be downloaded:
Content file download failed. Reason: Value does not fall within the expected range. Source File: /msdownload/update/software/crup/2013/06/windows8-rt-kb2856758-x64_4a2fc4fd76b6325dec1c52ff8839f669b8336554.cab Destination File: e:WsusContent\54\4A2FC4FD76B6325DEC1C52FF8839F669B8336554.cab.

it is similar to the reported case here:

Fixing registry as suggested above did not help. Hotfix didn't help either. There was no proxy at all. The solution was to reinstall WSUS with path E:\  rather that e:.

you are RIGHT my friend! Fortunately, you dont have to reinstall wsus. All you need to do is execute command (from C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\):

WSUSUTIL MOVECONTENT d:\WsusContent d:\WsusContent\movelog2.log –skipcopy

where "D" is you previously entered disk - this time in a correct form of "D:\"
Dont be puzzled by the looks of the command - it realy looks like your changing nothing, but it truly works!
