This broke when Symantec Endpoint Manager was installed to the same server.  Had to reinstall WSUS using alternate port and then workstations were able to pull down updates once they received the updated group policy.

That would do it, yes.  It wasn't apparent you install SEP, but it makes sense because that product works as a firewall too.

Yes SEP also removed virtual directories that WSUS was using.
Eeek!  How annoying is that?

Don't you just love how a third party app can trash stuff arbitrarily without cause or warning?  That's one reason I won't recommend Symantec products - they simply break more than they protect.
