ConfigMgr : OSD Install Updates Download Hangs

BuildCapture UpdatesHang-ReSize

I knew it had been too long since my last issue with ConfigMgr 2012! I’ve just redeployed the Configuration Manager 2012 environment my previous articles were based on only to encounter a new problem!

The issue is that now during Operating System Deployment during the ‘Install Updates’ step, downloading the updates appears to hang randomly as illustrated below.

The solution was fairly simple. After reviewing the DataTransferService.log file under C:\Windows\CCM\Logs I found the following errors:

<![LOG[Error sending DAV request. HTTP code 600, status ”]LOG]!><time=”08:37:54.017-120″ date=”07-16-2012″ component=”DataTransferService” context=”” type=”3″ thread=”2572″ file=”util.cpp:629″>

<![LOG[Error retrieving manifest (0x800704cf).  Will attempt retry 6 in 960 seconds.]LOG]!><time=”08:37:54.017-120″ date=”07-16-2012″ component=”DataTransferService” context=”” type=”2″ thread=”2572″ file=”dtsjob.cpp:1161″>

<![LOG[[CCMHTTP] ERROR: URL=https://<MP FQDN>:443/NOCERT_SMS_DP_SMSPKG$/4e90bf14-4e96-47e1-b32e-8a8e9fcc28df, Port=443, Options=480, Code=12030, Text=ERROR_WINHTTP_CONNECTION_ERROR]LOG]!><time=”08:37:54.345-120″ date=”07-16-2012″ component=”DataTransferService” context=”” type=”1″ thread=”728″ file=”ccmhttperror.cpp:291″>

So I copied the URL highlighted above into a browser window and got ‘page cannot be dispalyed’…! In fact it turned out that no HTTPS pages could be displayed, despite the HTTPS binding being configured in IIS. I removed the HTTPS binding on the Default Website and recreated it… problem solved.
