The DSS Authentication Web Service is not working.

What does this error mean and how do I correct it.  Or does it need correcting?  It is in the event log for WSUS

Apparently the problem is bigger than I thought.  "The WSUS administration console was unable to connect to the WSUS Server via the remote API. ".    Error 7032
I rebooted the server and checked IIS, Update Service services and SQL and even restarted them.  All are working.

In the first article you sent, the directories it told me to go to do not exist.  There is a WSUS directory but the others are not inside of it.

Should I start another post or can you continue to help?

I removed the WSUS file as instructed in the article.  That didn't help  I ran the "best practices" and for 1 error and 4 warnings.  The error is below.  Can you help with installing the SelfUpdate folder?  I don't know how to do this,

Title:
The SelfUpdate folder should be correctly installed on the default Web site or the WSUS Administration site

Severity:
Error

Date:
5/13/2011 7:23:38 AM

Category:
Operation

Issue:
The SelfUpdate folder is missing or incorrectly installed on the default Web site or the WSUS Administration site.

Impact:
Windows Update Agents will fail to verify the required version of the installed agent, which is required to communicate with the server. This will prevent Windows Update Agents from scanning for new updates or reporting their current status to the server.

Resolution:
Create a SelfUpdate folder on the default Web site or the WSUS Administration site.

Are you still getting WSUS errors/warnings in the eventvwr???

J.R. SitmanAuthor Commented:
looks like the original DSS error is gone.  Still getting "The WSUS administration console was unable to connect to the WSUS Server via the remote API. ".    Error 7032.

I'll reboot, to see if that helps

Also it is installed on a DC.  Best practices, states it shouldn't be.  Do you agree?

Donald StewartNetwork AdministratorCommented:
yes, but if you have no choice it can be run on a DC no problem

I have a member server if we can't get this fixed.  It's very puzzling because it has worked for over 6 months.  Not sure what changed?

J.R. SitmanAuthor Commented:
After the reboot "both" errors are back

Donald StewartNetwork AdministratorCommented:
If you have a member server, you should definitely put it on there.

Thanks for all your help.  It's working fine on the member server.
