  • WSUS 3.0 acess problems

    Hi

    I just installed WSUS 3.0, and I have some problems with it.
    The server can synchronize and download updates, but no client computer can access it.

    How I can check if everything is ok?

    I've configured my clients thru GPO to use the address of : http://servername:80.
    ( I've installed WSUS on the default web site)

    Am I suppose to see something at the IIS consol when clicking on browse?


    Thanks

    Yaniv

    Check IIS settings.

    In my case (2.0 to 3.0 upgrade) this worked perfectly

      You can verify/check where the clients are getting their updates from by looking at the windows update log on the client.

        What do you mean by
        but no client computer can access it
        ?
        The clients are not getting updates from the server?
        Sometimes it might take some time until the clients are starting to get updates from the server.
        You should check also if the GPO is applied on the client, by running gpresult on the command line.

          I'll try to make things clearer

          The client is getting the GPO settings without any problems.
          If I'll change something in the GPO, the change will take affect on the client.
          I don't see any client computers in the WSUS consol.

          If I'll put the server address in the browser should i see something?
          Because I'm getting 404 page

            How much time has passed?
            I would check the event viewer for events related to Windows Updates Agent and the update log on one of the clients, like joeqwerty suggested.

              I'll check the client logs.

              But for my other question, should i see something at the server address?
              I mean if i'll browse to its address?

                I am not sure, but I don't think you should get anything...
                I'll check later in the day, my WSUS server is down for maintenance...
                I'll keep you in touch.

                  Did you create AD groups for the computers and add those groups to WSUS as well as set the GPO settings for this?

                    I have set mine to http://servername.domainname for Intranet Microsoft Update Service location in the GPO settings.

                      Guys, check post #5:
                      The client is getting the GPO settings without any problems.
                      If I'll change something in the GPO, the change will take affect on the client.
                      Looks like the GPO is working properly.
                      Let's see what the OP says about the rest of the issues we raised...

                        I finally got it working.
                        Sorry for the late response, I was a bit busy.

                        What I forgot to mention is that I'm doing all of this in a test environment

                        The problems were:
                        1. Minor network problem ( problem with the socket on the wall )... but I recognize the problem at the beginning, so that didn't have much influence on the issue.
                        2. On the server LAN card the firewall didn't have 80 and 443 in the exceptions.

                        What was happening is the client was communicating with the server partially.

                        Now the client and the server can communicate properly.

                        What is left is to see if updates are getting installed properly.

                        Thanks for the help
