The new windows_updates.vbs which caches the results of the Windows Updates checks will minimise this, which seems to be caused by some internal corruption of the Software Servicing Store.
To clear down the CBS.log file, restart the windows modules installer service on the affected box, then run sfc /scannow, which will get rid of any undeletable cbs.log.persistxxxx files (which could be huge). It's probably also worth running the latest System Update Readiness Tool (KB947821). Another symptom is large numbers of .cab files in c:\windfows\temp, so clear those out too.

But now that you mention it, it may be the servers that have the windows_update.vbs plugin that has the problem. /Max Från: checkmk-en-boun...@lists.mathias-kettner.de<mailto:checkmk-en-boun...@lists.mathias-kettner.de> [mailto:checkmk-en-boun...@lists.mathias-kettner.de] För Marcel Skickat: den 29 oktober 2012 08:12 Till: email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> Ämne: [Check_mk (english)] windows_update.vbs and CBS.log Hello, I have been receiving reports that the plugin script windows_update.vbs generates entries in C:\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log, causing the file to eventually grow to sizes of several gigabytes, specifically on 2008 servers. Has anyone else had this issue? Kind regards, Marcel "Any opinion expressed in this e-mail or any attached files are those of the individual and not necessarily those of Hoople Ltd.
