wsyncmgr.log "Full sync required due to changes in main WSUS server location"

Hi

My setup is a single  SCCM 2012 SP1 cu3 site server with WSUS (Version 6.2.9200.16384) and SQL 2012 SP1 on the same box.

I've scheduled the SUP to sync 3 times a day and it seems to do so without any errors. The question I have is to do with the entry in the wsyncmgr.log in the title. What I have noticed is that at 14:00 every day the SUP does a Full sync instead of a regular sync which can take a couple of hours is this normal? Why does the wsyncngr log state that the WSUS server location has changed.

Thanks

Simon

Update- so it didn't do it at 14:00 today just did a regular sync ! I wonder what triggers a full sync and why it thinks the WSUS location has changed when it does?

Hi Boris

I have checked the logs on few of our SCCM Servers. There are some changes which require a full sync. There is also one because "Full sync required due to time since last full sync exceeding the configured Intervall of 7 days." or "Full sync required due to changes in category subscriptions".

But according to the Mastering Configuration Manager Book, there is always a full sync performed if the sync is started over a schedule. http://books.google.ch/books?id=drxP09hyiT4C&pg=PA342&lpg=PA342&dq=Full+sync+required+due+to+changes+in+main+WSUS+server+location&source=bl&ots=GumwhCx4_U&sig=iRoiWa55vof6lFate83iS1soonc&hl=en&sa=X&ei=csDKUrDlL4TSsga4zICoBw&ved=0CE0Q6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=Full%20sync%20required%20due%20to%20changes%20in%20main%20WSUS%20server%20location&f=false

Hi Thomas

Thanks for the reply, according to the mastering configuration manager book because my SUP syncs every 8 hours on a schedule it should do a full sync every time but it doesn't. I rather it didn't take 2 hours to do a full sync every 8 hours. Today at 14:00 it only took 6 minutes which I assume is a delta sync? strange?

Thanks

Simon

Hi,

"sync: SMS synchronizing updates, processed 0 out of 12012 items (0%)"

I saw that process 12012 items in wsyncmgr.log, and this log is incomplete.

Did the wsyncmgr.log record synchronization has been completed at 14:06?

Best Regards,

Joyce Li

Hi,

Based on my research, both manual and scheduled synchronization perform a delta synchronization. A full synchronization can be triggered only when some special changes happen, such as a different default SUP, the catagory changes... And every 7 days also have a full synchronization.

Hi Joyce

So the fact that my SUP does a full synchronization on most days at 14:00 means that something is wrong?

So far this week it has done at least 3 full synchronizations. When it does a full sync the wsyncmgr.log has the entry

"Full sync required due to changes in main WSUS server location. SMS_WSUS_SYNC_MANAGER 08/01/2014 14:00:00 8432 (0x20F0)"

Since only a couple of wsyncmgr logs are kept and the rest deleted I'm going to have to check every day and keep count for the next 7 days to see how many full syncs the SUP is actually doing and report back.

As I've said at the start I don't seem to get any component status alerts or warnings most of the time they are all green.

Best Regards

Simon

Update - I have counted 3 full syncs all with the entry above they all happen so far at 14:00 never at the 06:00 or 22:00 scheduled syncs

So full syncs at 14:00 on Sat 04/01/ , Wed 07/01 & today Thursday 08/01

Does anyone else get the "changes in main WSUS server location" wsyncmgr.log entry just prior to a full sync?

P.S I've done it again I've replied with our partner login I really should pay attention

Hi

So to sum up I had a full sync at 14:00 on Sat 04/01, Wed 07/01, Thurs 08/0,1 Fri 10/01, Sat 11/01

all preceded with this entry in the wsyncmgr.log "Full sync required due to changes in main WSUS server location"  ??

Am I being paranoid or is 4 or 5 full syncs a week expected?  Just to remind you my SUP syncs every 8 hours. 

Thanks

Simon
