"remote" SUP not syncing (head bleeding profusely from banging against wall)
I do love making life difficult for myself so I decided to install SCCM 2012 on a separate server to our WSUS server. Obviously this was fine as how frickin hard can it be for two microsoft servers to talk to each other? I've installed the WSUS server on SCCM as an SUP, made sure the ports are all correct and even installed the WSUS admin console on my SCCM server which is talking to WSUS without issue. Still I'm getting errors in my WCM.log saying "remote configuration failed on WSUS server" and "Setting new configuration state to 3 (WSUS_CONFIG_FAILED)". Has anyone successfully managed to set up this kind of thing on their production environment? I could move SCCM over to our WSUS server but that'd be too easy, and I can't believe it's this hard to use WSUS on a separate server.
Update: Also forgot to mention that I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling WSUS on the SUP as suggested by other posts on the subject
