Hi guys (first post so please be gentle!)
I have inherited a few servers and one has WSUS installed but all of a sudden it has stopped working correctly. I came to this conclusion when I opened the console and I received the following error:
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.
Now to compound this and I am sure it is related, when I try to browse through IE to the server on a client (http://server:8530
) I get:
Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.
I have had a look around and I think this might be something to do with me installing framework 1.1 earlier in the month as the timings add up but I have since uninstalled the 1.1 and just put (Server 2003 64bit) Framework 64 bit on there and still no joy: http://www.microsoft.com/DOWNLOADS/details.aspx?familyid=B44A0000-ACF8-4FA1-AFFB-40E78D788B00&displaylang=en
It is also worth pointing out that it is our domain controller so reboots are not really on the menu unfortunatley!
The Update, www RPC services are all running and have been restarted around 4.9 million times in the hope that it might just spark things into life but to no avail.
I would appreciate some information on this if anyone has it.
Thanks in advance
