I have a test environment, all servers are on 2012 R2.
WSUS is a separate server from ConfigMgr.

I get this message and I cannot figure it out.

Updates are being downloaded and show up in ConfigMgr but do not show up on the WSUS server, but it says:  All Updates 1 update of 667 shown but none are shown.

On 8/19/2014 10:28:42 AM, component SMS_WSUS_CONTROL_MANAGER on computer WSUS.TESTENV.INTERNAL reported: WSUS Control Manager failed to configure proxy settings on WSUS Server "WSUS.TESTENV.INTERNAL".

Possible cause: WSUS Server version 3.0 SP2 or above is not installed or cannot be contacted.

Solution: Verify that the WSUS Server version 3.0 SP2 or greater is installed. Verify that the IIS ports configured in the site are same as those configured on the WSUS IIS website.You can receive failure because proxy is set but proxy name is not specified or proxy server port is invalid.

When I install WSUS-KB2734608 it says not the right version.

Any suggestions

    did you follow the known issues on the KB?

    •If you use the Local Publishing feature from a remote WSUS console, when your WSUS Server is updated with this update, the remote WSUS consoles must also be updated to make sure the API versions match.
    •If you have locally published updates, you will have to re-sign and republish all local updates after you apply this update. Be aware that a minimum of a SHA1, 1024 key-length certificate is required. For more information about how to do local publishing of updates, go to the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) website:

    Hi wynnie2,

    Can you try to install this KB and see what happens.

    You should also check this because there have been some changes in WSUS in Windows Server 2012. In older versions of WSUS, the default communications ports were ports 80 and 443. In Windows Server 2012, the new default ports for WSUS communication are ports 8530 (HTTP) and 8531 (HTTPS). There have been some reports that SCCM, after the application of SP1, may change the WSUS/SUP port configuration. If you're having trouble with WSUS and SCCM 2012, check these settings out, too.

    I hope it helps.

    The ports are configured for 8530/8531 and when I try installing KB2720211 this is what I get.error

    Hi wynnie2,

    Can you write down here your test environment?
    I already know that you have W2k12 R2, but we don´t know the SQL versions installed, Service packs and so on.

    Please check the version of your WSUS you can follow this link. to help you identify the version.

    You can also check the version by clicking  Help, About on the WSUS.

    You should also check the logs, you can check here how to.

    And insert here all the info.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    The log just have 2 lines? If not insert all the log here.

    I also suggest remove WSUS role, then update W2k12R2 and also update SQL to SP1.

    After all reboots needed by the updates are done then install again the WSUS and check if any update is needed or available for WSUS.

    Let us know regards.

    I called Microsoft and this was the solution:

    --  My setup is configured correctly
    -- The error message above concerning:  Verify that the WSUS Server version 3.0 SP2 or greater is installed
        This error message is for Server 2008 R2 OS and can be ignored.   I installed WSUS through the Add Features options
        on Server 2012 R2
    --  Ran:  wsusutil.exe /checkhealth then ran wsusutil.exe /reset    
    --  Then ran:   iisreseterror
    Now no more error messages except for Verify that the WSUS Server version 3.0 SP2 or greater is installed, and MS advised that can be ignored.

    This KB2720211 is for Server 2008 R2 not Server 2012 R2.
