I have finally had time to test a permanent fix for the 1511 scan fail issue. Please take note this fix is performed in a lab environment and not tested in production.
While it is a fix there may be others available, please make sure you try this in pilot/dev environment before implementing in a production environment. I take no responsibility for it going wrong in production 🙂
First you need to download the latest CU for 1511 form the Microsoft Update Catalog –
X64 – Download Here
X86 – Download Here
Once downloaded add it to your SCCM Package Share folder and proceed to package as shown below
Create a Standard program and make sure the settings reflect the below
Here is the command line – wusa.exe <Insert Package.msu> /quiet /norestart
Example – wusa.exe windows10.0-kb4022714-x64_edf4e51111abeea65f7cbcf75755210bb6a711e3.msu /quiet /norestart
Once packaged right click the package and distribute the content to your required distribution points
Now time to deploy
You want to make sure you are deploying only to Windows 10 1511 so create a collection with the following query
select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.Build like '10.0.10586%'
Now right click your program and select deploy choosing the collection created in the above step
Its up to you what you do here but keep in mind ‘required’ will force the install, for testing purposes I have set it to available.
Review your summary and finalise.
Now lets wait for the test machine to pick up the new advertisement in software centre
Before we start take note the error showing in wuahandler.log
Windows Update Agent Version is 10.0.10586.0
Verify the installation by looking for Windows Update Standalone Installer & Windows Module Installer (it may take a while) my lab machine took 40 minutes to complete.
Once completed restart the machine
Check the Windows Update Agent Version
Now run a software update scan cycle
Watch the WUHandler.log – you will now see the pc is completing its scan.
In my case there is a new warning due to the June Malicious Software Update having a problem accepting the license. I have seen this in a few environments and leads me down the next rabbit hole…..
Overall your client should now be healthy and ready to update.
I can now see the feature update for 1607
Hope this nails it once and for all!
Please feel free to comment your experiences and Ill do my best to help.
