Problem after WSUS install

Hello Experts - I installed a new instance of WSUS 3 on Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.  The install went smoothly but after restarting the service will not connect and I get the following error in the console:

The WSUS administration console has encountered an unexpected error. This may be a transient error; try restarting the administration console. If this error persists,

Try removing the persisted preferences for the console by deleting the wsus file under %appdata%\Microsoft\MMC\.


System.NullReferenceException -- Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Source
Microsoft.UpdateServices.UI.SnapIn

Stack Trace:
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.UI.SnapIn.Scope.ServerSummaryScopeNode.ResetScopeNode()

Any ideas what the problem might be?  I'm at a loss.
