I was running WSUS on a 2008 Server and all was working and deploying updates fine until the Server was needed for something else and could not run WSUS anymore.
I configured a 2003 r2 Server to run WSUS and setup group policy to point to the new server for updates. I setup a test group with a few computers and applied the policy.
WSUS is able to connect to Microsoft for upates fine (I'm waiting to veryify that the data is downloading to the server). When I look at the computer group in the WSUS console, I see the computers but they are showing up without a status. under "Last Status Report" it showing that they have not reported yet.
When I go to the computers and check for updates I get an error
"Windows could not search for new updates- An error occured while checking for new updates for your computer. Error(s) found: Code 800B0001 - Windows Update encountered an unknown error).
Has anyone ever run into this problem? Any thoughts and comments would be greatly appreaciated.
