I've created my WSUS site incorrectly on the default website using a certificate and wanting to use 8531 on the site. i am required at work to move it onto another new website in IIS, but i am unsure as to what exactly needs to be done to accomplish it to ensure it works on the new website.  can someone describe in steps what needs to be done?   i can't find it online - only found it for 2008, but we are on 2003 R2.

If you need to change the port, have a look on this post: http://slashhome.wordpress.com/2008/09/29/wsus-default-web-site-and-custom-ports-in-iis/

so change the port in registry, run the 2 wsusutil commands and do the SSL again is all i need to do?  i thought there would be a little more.

also, i have to remove the default website (required), so how can i ensure the self-update doesn't give me a million errors as it needs the port 80 to communicate?  i have that happening on another network i administrate.
