Consider the following scenario:

- You have a primary site server that is running Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.

- You configure the software update point and the Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) role on the site server.

- You set up a proxy server that requires a user account for authentication.

- You set up a user account in site system properties for proxy authentication.

- You create and run Automatic Deployment Rules (ADR).

In this scenario, the update cannot be downloaded successfully. Additionally, an error message that resembles the following is logged in the PatchDownloader.log file:
