Lately I have been seeing some weird issues with my SBS2003 domain controller regarding Windows Server Update Services. Last week we would come in the morning to 18-24 errors all related to Windows Update Services. The errors would occur in groups of 6 and they would be the same 6 errors each and everytime. I can duplicate these errors by running "wsusutil checkhealth" from C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools as well.

The server was re-started over the weekend and we didn't see the errors when we came in Tuesday morning, but now they are back and can be reproduced as stated above.

Here are the 6 errors we receive:
Event ID: 12002
The Reporting Web Service is not working.

Event ID: 12012
The API Remoting Web Service is not working.

Event ID: 12032
The Server Synchronization Web Service is not working.

Event ID: 12022
The Client Web Service is not working.

Event ID: 12042
The SimpleAuth Web Service is not working.

Event ID: 12052
The DSS Authentication Web Service is not working.

I have tried many resolutions on here, but none have truly worked.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Right-clicking on both in IIS and Start is grayed out so I am going to assume that means the application is running.

If my assumptions are incorrect please feel free to point me in the right direction.

ensure that you have the selfupdate virtual directory on port 80
you can run the command "c:\Program Files\Update Services\setup\installselfupdateonport80.vbs" to install it there
then go over this article
