Hi,

Setup our main WSUS Server in our IT environment with WSUS 3.0 SP2.  Have three other servers in three differnt locations.  I want to set these up as replica of the parent WSUS server (Upstream) and use the parent server to distribute downloads to the other three servers.

Installed WSUS 3.0 SP2  one the first replica server, I choose the options to synchronize from another WSUS  server, give it the parent server name and the port # that the parent server uses to connect to Microsoft Update server.  Also, choose the option that this server is a replic of the upstream server.

When I run synchronization I get the following error:

Possible Solution

Check the permissions on the ApiRemoting30 virtual directory under the WSUS Web site in IIS. The computer and Administrator accounts must have appropriate rights to this virtual directory. The following procedure provides the steps to check the permissions on the ApiRemoting30 virtual directory.

1.On the WSUS server, open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

2.Navigate to Internet Information Services \ <computername> \ Web Sites \ <WSUS Web site> \ ApiRemoting30.

3.Right-click ApiRemoting30, and then click Permissions.
