Client Computers Do Not Report Back to the Microsoft WSUS 2.0 Server
If you’ve run into a situation where client computers do not report back to the Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server and the following error messages are logged to the Windowsupdate.log file on the client computers:
WARNING: Failed to upload events to the server with hr = 80244008.
WARNING: ReportEventBatch failure, error = 0x80244008, soap client error = 8, soap error code = 0, HTTP status code = 200
This problem occurs because of an indexing issue in the WSUS database. This indexing issue causes a time-out error before client computers can report back to the WSUS server. There is a hotfix available from Microsoft. Check out the KB article 910847. You do not have to restart the computer after you apply this hotfix.
