WSUS 3.0 Connection Error likely due to misconfigured IIS
Posted on 2007-11-24
A few months ago i experimented with IIS 6.0 on Win Server 2003 SP2, not knowing remembering that it was directly related to WSUS 3.0
I only changed the default website to a new one made by mydelf (although no longer required) and added FTP (also no longer required).
For some time now I have been able to use WSUS 3.0 and I'm pretty sure it's linked to IIS. I was hoping you would know of an easy fix.
Error details are here:
The WSUS administration console was unable to connect to the WSUS Server via the remote API.
Verify that the Update Services service, IIS and SQL are running on the server. If the problem persists, try restarting IIS, SQL, and the Update Services Service.
The WSUS administration console has encountered an unexpected error. This may be a transient error; try restarting the administration console. If this error persists,
Try removing the persisted preferences for the console by deleting the wsus file under %appdata%\Microsoft\MMC\.

I haven't yet followed any suggestions above - I'll wait for your comments first
