This article addresses the following error that appears in Patch Manager's Task History:

Exception Details

The scope resolution task failed to execute. Exception occurred at <date, time>. The request failed with HTTP status 403: Forbidden. WSUSConnection: Unable to connect to the WSUS Server (server name) using the account (account name). The request failed with HTTP status 403: Forbidden.




All Patch Manager versions


This occurs when the tasks in 'Scheduled Tasks' have become corrupted and need to be recreated.


Delete  and recreate the jobs that are corrupted:


1. Open Patch Manager and go to Scheduled Tasks.

2. Delete any of the tasks that are failing with the HTTP 403: Forbidden error.

3. Recreate the tasks.

4. Rerun the recreated tasks. The HTTP 403: Forbidden error should no longer appear.
