Error 0x80070003 in Software Update Services (SUS) Synchronization Log

In this article, I will explain about the Error While Synchronizing SUS.


SYMPTOMS


You see the following error in SUS synchronization log while SUS synchronization;




Manual Sync Started- Tuesday, April 19, 2005 10:53:55 AM Failed


Updates Added:
 None


Updates Removed:
 None


Reissued Update(s):
 None


Errors:
 Error writing to the content folder. (Error 0x80070003: The system
cannot find the path specified.)


Sync Finished-Tuesday, April 19, 2005 10:53:55 AM




CAUSE


This is due to a missing entry in ‘C:\inetpub\wwwroot\autoupdate­\dictionaries\settings.txt’ for CabPoolPath, which should be followed by location to the contents cab folder.


WORKAROUND


The CabPoolPath section should contain the path to the downloaded patches (i.e. Installation Drive:\SUS\content\cabs)


CabPoolPath,C:\SUS\content\cab­s
CabPoolURL,
http://Your-SUSSERVER-Name/con­tent



Make sure you save the changes and try to sync again and synchronization works.

  1. In my case

    I started the WUSyncSvc.exe manually out of the wusync folder.

    After that, SUS already start to synchronize again.
