Hello.

I just deployed this WSUS server and the GPO to our domain.  Now I keep seeing the following error when checking for updates on clients:

Error Found: Code 80072EFD

After searching for a while, I cannot find a straight answer.  I'm sure you experts now...

Thanks!

If your WSUS server is setup using port 8530 you will need to provide that in the GPO

http://servername:8530

dstewartjr,

Not that I'm aware of.  I just updated the port in the GPO and the problem is still there

Have you synchronize WSUS server with Microsoft updates and you got success to download all update catalogs ?
Then you need to approve some updates for client computers and then wait for schedule installation

Since WSUS GPOs are computer based, you must reboot the client computers to apply those
Also you can check if GPO is applied on client computers by running rsop.msc \ gpresult

Also run below command on client computer to check WSUS server
wuauclt.exe /DetectNow
