Problem With WSUS Console Not Connecting To Server After Update
I recently encountered a problem where trying to connect to the WSUS administration console on a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine would result in an error stating that there was a problem connecting to the SQL server.
After looking around online, I found that a recent update to WSUS added handling of a new file format to WSUS and required some additional manual configuration after the update.
- Open an elevated Powershell, and then run the following command:
"C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe" postinstall /servicing
- Next open the Server Manager Add Roles and Features wizard
- Restart the server:
shutdown /r /t 00
