I have a Windows Server 2016 machine installed with WSUS. I have the firewall port 8530 and 8531 allowed through. I have 10 updates approved and ready for download. I have a GPO with 3 computers in it with the Intranet location for WSUS set to HOSTNAME:8530 and Stats server set to http://HOSTNAME:8530
I am trying to get the laptops on Windows 10 x64 to connect to the server and pull the updates. When I go to connect to the WSUS server Windows Updates states:
We couldn't connect to the update service. We'll Try again later, or you can check now.
This is my first WSUS install so I need a little help. When I run the ClientDiag.exe on the client I get the following.
Checking Machine State Checking for admin rights to run tool -- PASS Automatic Updates Service is running -- PASS Background Intelligent Transfer Service is running -- PASS GetFileVersion(szEngineDir,&susVersion) failed by hr=0x80070002 The System cannot find the file specified Press Enter to Complete
If I go the browser and go to http://HOSTNAME:8530/Setup/iuinet.cab it successfully downloads the cab file. So it can reach the location.
I cannot figure out how to get ELTs and the WindowsUpdate log to show me any USEFUL information since they moved it to that stupid ELT through PowerShell configuration.
What am I missing or am unable to see why my client cannot connect to WSUS?
