Description

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.

The Fix

  • 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
  • Select .NET Framework 4.5 Features -> WCF Services -> [X] HTTP Activation
  • Restart the server:
    shutdown /r /t 00
