Errors with 11.2.1 release

Errors with 11.2.1 release

Postby InputOutput099 » 12.04.2018, 21:48

So I downloaded 11.2.1 for a clean install for a Win 7 x64 computer. I chose verify, security only, net frame (because I read that you should have it even though I feel it is possibly an unnecessary beast), service packs, and Win defender. When I press start, I get these errors:

http://download.wsusoffline.net/mkisofs.exe Requested name is valid but no data of the required type was found.

Warning: Download of the mkisofs tool failed
It then repeats the error for download.sysinternals.com and ends with this:

wsus offline error download failure for w61-x64 glb.

Press any key to continue.

I try again with just service pack checked and continue to get this error.

I have thought about downgrading the tool as I haven't had issues in the past with the 10x version but that wouldn't get me the newest updates through March correct?

Please advise.

Please do the following: Open a CMD in wsusoffline\bin directory (right-click in Explorer and select "Open command prompt here" or similar), type the following command
Code: Select all
wget.exe -S http://download.wsusoffline.net/mkisofs.exe
and post the output here.

Thanks Dalai,

Hopefully I did this right:
Code: Select all
D:\Users\Private\Desktop\WSUSO\bin>wget.exe -S http://download.wsusoffline.net/mkisofs.exe
--2018-04-12 22:50:48--  http://download.wsusoffline.net/mkisofs.exe
Resolving download.wsusoffline.net (download.wsusoffline.net)... failed: The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found. .
wget: unable to resolve host address 'download.wsusoffline.net'

Is this a unique issue?

Yup.

wget: unable to resolve host address 'download.wsusoffline.net'

So it's a problem with the DNS (name server) you're using. Can you download the file http://download.wsusoffline.net/mkisofs.exe in your browser? Do you use some kind of proxy?

We've had DNS and other internet access issues before.

Nope, no proxy. It's not even back online yet. Could that mean a bigger issue?

I was however able to download the application (different computer.) from the direct URL. Do I need to check something for the sysinternals as well?

Thank you

Is your second computer on the same network as the first one?
Does the download work on the first computer using your browser?

Yes.

No, again that one is not online ( I know that shouldn't make a difference.)

What I wanted to ask is if I should install all of my drivers first? (Again this a clean install) I personally didn't think that to be the issue though because my wi-fi card uses the built in driver from Microsoft. There is a site for updated drivers for the network card but ironically the MS one works best. But I thought I would ask JIC...

I think it's easier to run UpdateGenerator on the system that is able to access the internet. Then, make the files available to your system without internet access - how you do that is up to you, e.g. USB drive, optical drive, network share (haha, I know) or something else. Of course it also works to bring the system without internet access back online and download the updates there. Whatever is easier for you.

What I don't get is why you try to download updates on a system that doesn't have internet access. I mean, it's obvious that UpdateGenerator requires internet access, isn't it? Or did I understand something wrong regarding this?

To download the updates, you need Internet access, obviously. The "offline" moniker in WSUS Offline Update refers to installation, only.

Urrgh... sorry for having a "did you turn the power on?" moment. :oops: I don't know why I thought this version was going to be different and an 'OOB' deployment that didn't require using the internet. Never mind me and severe lack of sleep.

I was able to get the updates through the 2nd computer

Though I do still have a few questions though,

1.)The updates that are seen as 'failed' is that because of clicking the security only box?
2.) Are kb4056894 & kb4056897 automatically excluded? Hopefully so...
3.) If you include a ExcludeList & ExcludeListForce-all in the custom folder, what does this supersede (if at all) in the program itself when downloading?

Thanks
