WSUS 3.0 SP2 Fresh install, can not connect to server
Posted on 2010-08-26
I have a fresh install of Server 2003 R2, all patched and ready to go. I am building this to be our new WSUS server. I have installed SQL Server 2008 and enable IIS. When I run the WSUS 3.0 SP2 installer, the install goes smooth until the end. I the install finishes and closes giving me this error:
"An unexpected error occured, and this wizard must be closed. You may restart the WSUS Server Configuration Wizard from the Options page in the WSUS 3.0 console"
I can open up a WSUS console, but can not connect to the server.
I have searched around and found people with the same error who have solved their problem by changing the port that WSUS uses from 80 to 8530. I tried this and still no luck. If I run netstat -ano there is nothing using either of those ports.
