WSUS - No Computers listed in console

Hello I setup WSUS on our Windows 2008 server and I setup the Group Policies to point to the Intranet Microsoft Update Service Location and still no computers are showing up in the console. Under "All Computers" there is 0 listed.

First verify that the clients are getting the policy

from a cmd prompt on any client

reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

I ran the cmd & the WUServer & WUStatusServer are pointing to the correct server.
Do they show up within 10 minutes after running:

wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow

No, they do not.
What errors are there in the windowsupdate.log from a client??

In case you missed my post


If your clients windows update agent(wuauclt.exe) version and the WSUS version do not match, then you get the "800B0001" error

You need to install the following update on your WSUS
After installing the update I cannot connect to the server through the console...
Did you reboot the server ??

try running the command

wsusutil reset
I restarted and when I run wsusutil reset it tell me it is not an internal or external command... I still cannot connect to the server.
I wanted to run the WSUS 3.0 SP2 configuration wizard and it's not located under options.
"I restarted and when I run wsusutil reset it tell me it is not an internal or external command"

You have to browse to it, normally under "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools"
I was able to run the wsusutil reset command I get the error

Fatal Error: Access to module dbo.spWakeUpResetAgent is blocked because the signature is not valid.
I finally was able to run the command without error and I still cannot connect to the server I get this error.

Cannot connect to 'PI007W8S'. The server may be using another port or different Secure Sockets Layer setting.
Is there a proxy configured on this server??
I was able to connect to the server now but I cannot get client computer to show up in the console, nor can I synchronize I get this errror

No we use microsoft .isa
Scroll down to the ISA section here and verify your settings
If I reinstall and choose to store updates & an internal database on the C:\ it installs correctly and I can synchronize w/ windows update but if I put it on a partition it errors and I cannot synchronize. I have very little space on the C:\ and prefer to have it install on a partition. Regardless of which partition it is on I still cannot get the client computers to sync with it.

I want to thank you for sticking with me and helping me with my problem.
Are the partitions that you are trying to place it on compressed???
