OnSearchComplete – Failed to end search job. Error = 0x80244019. Scan failed with error = 0x80244019.

Another day another scan issue on a Windows Server 2008 R2 with SCCM 2012 client installed.

When checking report of which clients had scan issues, I investigated a particular client which had the following error in WUAHandler.log “OnSearchComplete – Failed to end search job. Error = 0x80244019. Scan failed with error = 0x80244019.”

To get more information, I looked into C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log and found:

WARNING: GetAuthorizationCookie failure, error = 0x80244019, soap client error = 10, soap error code = 0, HTTP status code = 404
WARNING: Failed to initialize Simple Targeting Cookie: 0x80244019
WARNING: PopulateAuthCookies failed: 0x80244019
WARNING: RefreshCookie failed: 0x80244019
WARNING: RefreshPTState failed: 0x80244019
WARNING: PTError: 0x80244019
WARNING: Reporter failed to upload events with hr = 80244019.

Is this instance, it was a proxy issue. To view the proxy set from CMD:

netsh winhttp show proxy

My particular server did not need to use a proxy so I reset it by:

netsh winhttp reset proxy

However in some cases, some users have had to add a bypass-list using the <local> parameter for their WSUS server so the proxy is bypassed for the WSUS server. A reboot is needed after this.

Failed to run BeginSearch() on WUAgent. Error = 0x80070422

In an SCCM 2012 environment I was running through some reporting on which clients reported back scan errors so I could fully patch all servers. Upon checking the servers which failed to report software update compliance, I checked the C:\Windows\CCM\WUAHandler.log and saw the error “Failed to run BeginSearch() on WUAgent. Error = 0x80070422”

0x80070422

In my case, this was an easy fix. If you check services.msc you will see that the Windows Update service (or Automatic Updates service depending which version of Windows Server you are running) was stopped or disabled.

After starting this service and running a Software Updates Scan Cycle again, the WUAHandler.log reported that the cycle worked fine.
