SCCM 2012 R2 WSUS update source not found on site


I am looking to install WSUS onto our SCCM 2012 R2 server for the first time, however I am getting some errors in the wsyncmgr.log and wcm.log files.

To install WSUS I did the following:
1.Installed WSUS with default settings and port 8530
2.Installed KB2720211
3.Rebooted the server
4.Installed KB2734608
5.Rebooted the server
6.Installed SUP role in SCCM with critical updates for server 2012 r2 only
7.Triggered catalogue sync

I am getting the attached error messages

It's strange as the wcm.log file shows that it connects to the WSUS on the server fine, but the wsyncmgr.log file states it can't find a WSUS server.

I have tried removing everything and starting from scratch, without any success.  Any idea where I am going wrong?
I am running SCCM 2012 R2 with the latest SP1, on a Server 2008 R2 OS, with WSUS 3.0 SP2 installed on the same server.

Thanks in advance

Maybe this would help.

1) Uninstall SUP role

2. Uninstall WSUS

4. Delete SUSDB from SQL Server if any

5. Restart Server

6. Install WSUS (Chose to install DB not WID)

7. Configured Updates to be stored locally

8. Run Post Deployment Configuration from Server manager

9. Started WSUS Admin Console and ran Wizard (also chose to connect for the catalog sync) up to the Point where you select the products. Here I canceled the wizard without choosing any products

10. Install SUP role in SCCM and configure the right Settings (WSUS on Server 2012 Defaults to its own admin Website and ports 8530 and 8531) and select the products you required.

11. Check following log file if WSUS does not sync with SCCM.

Path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs

File Name:


12.) Starts synchronization in the sccm console
