    WSUS on SBS (PCs cannot update)

    Hi all

    I have a WSUS installation on a Windows Server SBS (Standard FE) SP2. Unfortunately although I have few PCs in my domain, they are not updating from the WSUS server. In fact each PC has to update manually..but it still shows up as being managed by sys admin. I recently added a new PC on this domain, and its not even listing in the computers node in WSUS! Also I am noticing that when I leave the WSUS console open an error appears like this:

    The WSUS administration console was unable to connect to the WSUS Server via the remote API.

    Verify that the Update Services service, IIS and SQL are running on the server. If the problem persists, try restarting IIS, SQL, and the Update Services Service.

    System.Net.WebException -- The operation has timed out

    Re: WSUS on SBS (PCs cannot update)

    Have you rebooted the Server to see if that clears the problem?

    If you can't fix it within 30 minutes then I would blow WSUS away (saving the Updates of course) and reinstall it. The Database would then resync with the present Updates and it would be a bit like a clean install.

    However this is SBS so you may fix it by running the Wizard. Been a long time since I have played with SBS so this suggestion my not be correct.
