Unable to generate policy XML for item  Software update Plug-in Upgrade

Unable to build the client configuration XML for advertisement with guid

Reason did not get a row for software delivery advertisement from the SWD tables.


Cloning the Default Policy spawns extra policies that cause code base issues.


  1. Disable all cloned Software Update Agent Upgrade polices.
  2. In Windows Task Scheduler on the Notification Server run 'NS.Package refresh' and 'NS.Package Distribution'
  3. Delete the cloned policies previously disabled.
  4. Either enable the Default Upgrade Policy and have it run ASAP and on a schedule.
