SCCM 2012  and WSUS 4.0 (Server 2012) install errors

Has anyone had any luck with the integration of SCCM 2012 and WSUS 4.0 (Server 2012)? I currently have a SCCM 2012 SP1 infrustracture up and running but does not want to play nice neither with WSUS 4.0 or WSUS 3.0 SP2. I keep getting a "Remote configuration failed on WSUS Server".

I want WSUS on a different server and I have tried both: server 2012 and server 2008 from scratch and have not been successfull at all. I even installed the updates required for server 2008 wsus 3.0 SP2 (KB2720211 and KB 2734608).

I have followed the instructions in http://www.windows-noob.com/ website and other websites but cannot find any answers or solutions. All the websites claim that is pretty straight forward: install wsus and let sccm SUP role take care of the rest.

I have a primary only infrustrature, the primary sccm server does have admin rights in the wsus server. I have tried different ports 8530/8531 and 80/443 without any success. The sccm primary does input the SMS folder with all the folders.

The SUPSetup log files claims that the SUP installation was successful. The SMSEXEC in the WSUS server does have registry errors.

Attached are some of the log files.

Is there a trick or am I missing something? I would like to install WSUS in server 2012 if possible.

Please advise and your help is appreciated.

Hello,

I have the following questions:

1) Have you configured anything on the Remote WSUS Server after the installation? Because you must not do this, ConfigMgr takes care of it.
1) In your primary server: Have you previously installed WSUS? Is it uninstalled completely?
2) What version of Windows Server (and SP Level) is your Remote WSUS Server?, what is the SP Level of WSUS?
3) Please provide more complete logs, if you would like to mask details then take care not to confuse us and state the server names, ip addresses.

K. thank you for the reply. I got it working. It was a firewall issue. However, It works great without SSL but as soon as I enabled SSL thru port 8531 I get a 'System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel. ---> System.Security.Authentication.AuthenticationException: The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure'

I have enabled the remote server wsus to SSL with all the recommendations (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb633246.aspx) but it seems that the certificate does not want to play nice.

Please see attachment for further information

Fixed it. I had to create a server certificate request to PKI infrastructure via mmc.

Figured it out. If anyone is having the same issues as I did, just make sure to check your enterprise firewall traffic from sccm to wsus and make sure to implement a certificate request thru mmc. A server certificate must be put in place in wsus, not a personal certificate. hope this helps.
