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

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.
