Wuaueng.dll Database recovery/restore failed with -1011.

Periodically, my Windows 2000 Servers get ESENT Event ID 454:
wuaueng.dll (1696) Database recovery/restore failed with unexpected
error -1011. Once this occurs, additional errors are logged about
every 5 minutes until the Automatic Updates service is restarted.

I repaired DataStore.edb. I have cleared the SoftwareDistribution
folder altogether and repopulated. I have reinstalled Wsus 2. Lately,
I upgraded to the Wsus 3.0 client. Any of these steps cleared it for a
period of time, sometimes days or weeks. Then the symptom reoccurs and
the event log fills back up.

Can someone suggest a good permanent solution?

For WSUS issues, it would behoove you to post to that specific newsgroup:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/com...pdate_services

Which DataStore.edb ... the one in WINNT\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore?
If so, how did you repair it ?
If you deleted all of the contents of the SofwareDistribution subfolders
then the DataStore.edb was also deleted.

Is there an antivirus or security program monitoring or scanning that
file or the SoftwareDistribution subfolders ? That *may* be the cause of
data corruption.

MS recommends running Recovery prior to attempting to
repair databases -

esentutl /r %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Datastore\datastore.edb

NP when it comes to " some mails flooding in the other day "

Checking integrity ...
Esentutl.exe /g %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
\DataStore.edb

Running repair ...
Esentutl.exe /p %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
\DataStore.edb

Defragmenting database ...
Esentutl.exe /d %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
\DataStore.edb

I will repost over at microsoft.public.windows.server.update_services.

Many a times when we try to get access to the data present in the EDB files, we are not able to do so. It happens because the EDB files has gone corrupt because of virus attack or any other thing. You can get rid of this problem by using EDB Repair software. This software repairs all your damaged or corrupted EDB Files and you would then be able to get access to the data in your EDB Files. This software is very easy to use and does not corrupt the good EDB Files. I advise you to have a look at this software.
