OneDrive / SkyDrive – fix for onedrive sync engine host stopped working

As an IT professional I tend to work on multiple systems (tablets, laptops, desktops) and I use OneDrive (SkyDrive) extensively to always have access to the latest versions of my documents.

I love OneDrive, but today when I wanted to continue working on my desktop I got an error : “onedrive sync engine host stopped working”. So first thing I tried was just restarting OneDrive, which didn’t work. Then I figured … ah well let’s just reboot and see what happens.

When this also didn’t work I looked online and saw I wasn’t the only one experiencing this. I also came across the OneDrive Troubleshooter tool. After I ran this, followed the instructions and waited about 5-10 minutes, it worked properly again.

I hope this helps you to resolve similar issues.

Notes:

  • In processes the process shows as OneDrive Sync Engine Host , but the process is still SkyDrive.exe
  • In the application log, an event 1000 was generated with the following information:Faulting application name: skydrive.exe, version: 6.3.9600.17055, time stamp: 0x53291a62

Powershell – Get WSUS clients Without Sync Or Report In X Days

One of the tasks of a WSUS administrator is to make sure that WSUS clients are up-to-date. This requires the WSUS clients to report to the WSUS server on a regular basis.

So if clients do not report to the WSUS server, you need to investigate and resolve the issue.

This script will show you which WSUS clients haven’t reported in X days:

Another use case would be if you manage a WSUS infrastructure with an upstream server and multiple downstream servers for each customer. If one or more 3rd parties are responsible for managing the WSUS clients, you could use this script to automatically mail them the clients they’re responsible for that haven’t reported for X days.
