I am running SBS 2003 R2 and am having trouble getting WSUS 3.0 SP1 going on the machine. I have installed both the server and the console on the same box but when I try to connect to the wsus server from the MMC console I get the following error message:
Cannot connect to MYSERVER the server maybe using another port or different SSL setting.
I have tried to connect on all ports (80,8530,8531,443) but with the same error message. Netstat confirms that the computer is listening on 8530
This above problem may tie in with another error message I get when I try to reinstall WSUS and start over. At the very final stages of the WSUS installation I get the following message:
An error occurred when communicating with the server and this wizard must be closed. You may restart WSUS server configuration wizard from the options page in the WSUS console.
My SBS2003 install is running the default settings so nothing special in that department. I have not made any changes to SSL or the IIS manager. One notable exception would be that there is a sharepoint server website in the IIS manager but Im pretty sure that Ive uninstalled the program. During installation I am told that the default port would be: http://MYSERVER:8530
because I already have a service using port 80. All other settings during installation are standard.
Can anyone help?
