I had a working wsus server with 50 clients showing from my domain. After 3 weeks my wsus server stop working I then removed and reinstalled WSUS on my win 2003 server. Since then I cannot get any of my domain wsus clients to show up in the wsus admin console. I ran the wsus client diag tool and get the following messages:
VerifyWUServerURL() failed with hr=0x800710dd
The operation identifier is not valid."

Can anyone help me.

You should verify your settings....IIS may have been altered could be one reason

1) Globally run the wuauclt /resetauthorization (on each PC)

You can do this by hand, you can run it remotely as part of a logon/logoff script, or via PSexec.

Resetauthorization only resets the susclientid and does not resolve misconfigurations as the error indicates

And also

Check in the IIS Manager, if the Windows Integrated  Authentication is enabled on  the "SimpleAuthWebService",  "Content", "ClientWebService", "ReportingWebService" and the  "SelfUpdate" folders.

Windows Integrated Authentication should only be enabled on "WSUSAdmin" Per the article I previously posted.

Do you have "NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users"   in the security filtering of your WSUS GPO?
