Windows Update Cient on Windows Server 2012 fails with 800b0001

Hi all,

I just try to add my newly installed W2012 RTM to my existing WSUS 3 on W2003x64. Searching for updates fails on W2012 with Error Code 800b0001.
All W7/W2008/XP machines contacting the same WSUS server run fine on updates.

Does someone knows a solution for this special combination? (Hotfix WSUS-KB2720211-x64 is installed).

    Please refer below article this might help you.


    Run command gpresult /r and check WSUS gpo policy applied on the windows server 2012 or not.
