[Solved] [sha].cab file not created when update is published

Topics: Publishing Issue
Nov 1, 2013 at 8:18 PM
I tried to publish the updates for Flash Player plugin and ActiveX using the Adobe SCUP package from and the individually downloaded MSI files from http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html, but in both cases, when I publish the update, the associated CAB file that is on the "Folder: " line of the "Informations" tab of the update is not created, and so the updates do not get downloaded by the clients. I'm using WPP release 1.3.1310.12, WSUS 3.2.7600.256

Please, try again to publish the MSI you have downloaded. At the end of the process of publishing, go to 'Help' -> 'Send debug info' , add a comment so that I can identified your request, and click on 'Yes'.

I commented with the URL of this discussion post. I went to add more commentary, but, when I hit the return key in the comments field it just sent the report.

Also, the MSI in question for the update I sent the debug info about was for a different product. Currently no cab files are being published in the WSUSContentFolder for any updates. When after the update is published, if I refresh the view, the folder text field showing where the cab should be is highlighted in red. If I run "wsusutil checkhealth" on the WSUS server after publishing an update, I get an error 10032 in the event log: The server is failing to download some updates.
Also, the following shows up in the softwaredistribution.log in the WSUS server:

Turns out that the certificate was bad. I wasn't seeing any message of this when using WPP from a remote console, but saw it when I opened WPP locally on the server. Had to regenerate the certificate 6 times before it worked. Everything is working as expected now.
