WSUS Windows 7 Clients Fail connecting to WSUS Server 2012 R2
Posted on 2015-02-02
Hi All Experts:
I have setup WSUS on a single server. The install of WSUS went very well and I followed all the instructions from Microsoft, but apparently the issue I am having may very well be related to either IIS or permissions. I have tried multiple ports (8530, 8531, 80) and I am not having any luck. I am being forced to use Solar Winds WSUS Client Diagnostic tool as most of my clients are 64 bit and Microsoft still has not come out with a diagnostic tool that runs on 64 bit operating systems (I will state these are all Windows 7 Professional Clients). When I run Solar Winds Client Diagnostic tool I pretty much get the same error:
# Solarwinds® Diagnostic Tool for the WSUS Agent
WSUS Server Connectivity -- The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.
clientwebservice/client.asmx: Error: TrustFailure
simpleauthwebservice/simpleauth.asmx: Error: TrustFailure
content: Error: TrustFailure
selfupdate/iuident.cab: Error: TrustFailure
iuident.cab: Error: TrustFailure
I have tried so many different options I have not gotten lost. I do want to mention one thing. I Have 3 servers on 3 different subnets. All of my servers are standalone servers with regards to WSUS, as I have great bandwidth at these locations so I am not connecting to an Upstream server. If anyone can assist me I would appreciate it.
