Can anyone advise I've got an issue with the WSUS server whereby when you try to connect to the WSUS update services snap in on the server it gives the error saying the following:-
Error: Connection Error
An error occurred trying to connect the WSUS server. This error can happen for a number of reasons. Check connectivity with the server. Please contact your network administrator if the problem persists.
Click Reset Server Node to connect the server again.
I have tried this WSUS-related Web services may stop working when you upgrade a Windows Server 2003-based computer to Windows Server 2008 and it didnt fix it. I cannot seem to connect to the update services from my machines but I can ping the server. I have stopped the services and restarted and rebooted the server.
Have a look and make sure the WSUS data folder is available. This will cause a problem, normally this is on a diferent drive from the OS.
the account your connecting to still a member of the WSUS admin group? (assuming you are trying to connect remotely using the WSUS console from another pc)
Thanks the folder is there but I guess something else is screwed up with wsus. I'll try removing it and reinstalling and seeing how it goes.
