New Installation of WIndows 2012 R2 Update Services, no clients reporting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I need some help with the following. We have been using the WSUS 3.0 server on windows 2003 for a very long time. Now it is time to replace it with Windows 2012 R2 updates services, comming with the 2012 R2 server. We have a pretty straight forward environment so i did not see the need to migrate databases etc. I simply replaced the existing WSUS serve rwith a new one with the same ip addresses etc. My idea was that the clients would register to the new server and then i could continue. However it looks like no clients are Reporting to the new server at all. Nothing should need to be changed at the client side.

    I have tested if i can the new WSUS server from the client and also if i can access it on port 80. Both is the case.

    On  one of the server i ran the following WSUS cleanup script to see if the client would report to the new WSUS, but also that did not work.

    Am i overlooking something or is the new WSUS server not working properly?
    Is any additional configuration needed when configuring 2012 R2 update services?
    How can i troubleshoot besides the two things i have already done?

    Your help is appreciated !

    Cleanupscript:

    @Echo off
    echo Stopping Windows update service
    net stop wuauserv
    echo Registering DLLs
    regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 /s wups.dll
    regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll
    echo Cleaning Software distribution folders
    c:
    cd %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
    rd /s/q DataStore
    mkdir DataStore
    rd /s/q Download
    mkdir Download
    echo Deleting old WSUS ID (if any)
    reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v AccountDomainSid /f
    reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v PingID /f
    reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v SusClientId /f
    Echo Starting service
    net start wuauserv
    Echo Forcing detection
    wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow
    echo Ready

    WSUS on W2012R2 will install on Port 8530 by default. Did you have set
    up the Port in your GPO?
