  1. Hi,

    We created a script which checks for Windows Updates, installs the updates, creates a report and reboots if necessary. 
    This script runs in a single task and every system has it's own scheduled task. Unfortunately when I check the Script Output Results (where our report file is shown), I noticed the following error:

     "Download Status: FAILED With Error -- You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression. The property 'Updates' cannot be found on this object. Verify that the property exists and can be set. Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))()"
    (See the attachment for a more detailed Script Output, the script is also attached.)

    I tried the following:
    - Run the script locally on a system > Runs successfully. (Probably permission error?)
    - Enabled the Powershell User Impersonation in the Pulseway Agent Manager (Administrator permissions) > Same error.
    - Tried using SubInACL to fix (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_update/windows-update-error-0x80070005-need-a-fix-click/e4cb8700-f215-4f1a-8bd4-6457ac619c19) > SubInACL error: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing - RegSetKeySecurity Error : 5 Access is denied." > Still not fixed.

    I keep getting this error on a dosin of systems but can't figure out what the exact cause/problem is.

    - Not Windows Server version related > Error occurs on multiple Windows Server versions.
    - Script runs successfull locally on systems.

    Any ideas?

  2. Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your response. I started to use the Agent Group  Policy. I configured the Agent Group Policy to my needs but I still am wondering how it works.
    When I open the Pulseway Manager on the same server for which I created the Agent Group Policy, I checked the Notification- and the Storage settings but they are different from the Agent Group Policy. 

    Which settings are leading? The Agent Group Policy from the Pulseway Portal or the Pulseway Manager?
