      From time to time, we get some users with the following exception when they try to contact a WSUS server from the EminentWare Console:

       

      Source: Data Grid Server (THEDUDE)
      Device: THEDUDE

      This may be related to a registry key permission on the EminentWare server.

      Check the permissions on the EminentWare Sever for the following registry key:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Update Services\Server\Setup

      If the permissions on the Setup key doesn’t allow the local ‘Users’ group to have Read access, then please add and retry.  This almost always fixes the issue.
