Update Retiever Fills Up Windows Server Event Logs with Error ID 3

2017-09-27, 20:54 PM

Hi there fellow tech savvy people,



There really seems to be nothing about this subject on the interwebs.


After installing Lenovo's Update Retriever software, we noticed our Windows Server event logs gets flooded with Severity:Warning - Error ID 3 messages. The error messages are all unique, telling of an operation the program has executed like checking for updates.


As one can imagine, this is not ideal to be inundated with useless messages, especially when looking for clues to e.g. why the server BSOD'ed.


Otherwise, the software works great, and we push out drivers to users with it.


Any input would be appreciated.



Best Regards,

Sorry you are having issues with UR. What version are you using? If you expand the warning, are there any additional details?
