I'm trying to use MBSA 2.1 to scan my server to see which patches I need to
allpy. But all the servers come back with "The catalog file is damaged or an
invalid catalog." on both online and offline scan. The MBSA did work before.
I downloaded the latest wsuscn2.cab and wuredist.cab for the offline scan. I
also installed windows update agent 3.0 on some of the servers, but they
still gave me the same error. The version of the wuauclt.exe is 7.4.7600.226
on system32.

I'm running out of iedas. Anyone know how to fix that and why it happens?
thanks.

MBSA is not getting connected to Microsoft Update Site.. If you are
using proxy server, configure Internet Explorer to use the Proxy
Server. That will solve the issue.

I´m having the same error here.

MBSA 2.1.1 running on Win XP SP3. I try to runa local scan. MBSA downloads
the catalog from Microsoft Update but when it finishes downloading it, I get
the "the catalog file is damaged or an invalid catalog" error.

I also tried downloading the wsusscn2.cab, mauth.cab and redist.cab into
"c:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Program
Data\Microsoft\MBSA\2.2.1\Cache" and get the same error and running from
comand line with the /nd option with the same error.

I did remove everything and did a fresh install of MBSA withot success.

It was working fine last week, both for local and remote scans.. I´m behind
a corporate firewall but there were no changes to it. IE is in online mode, I
can surf the Internet and download.

Any help will be appreciated.
