  • Hi,

    Do you have any other downstream servers?  If so are they working correctly?  If you don't, is there anything in your event logs on the downstream server to give you any clues?  You mention event ID 7053 but is there any more useful information if your event logs?  Feel free to share some of the relevant logs here so we can see. 

    Also, has this ever worked or has it recently broken?

    Hope this helps.

  • Try to restart the WSUS service. It may be bad caching.

  • What exactly do you mean by "WSUS can't connect to the console".

    • Do you mean you cannot connect from the LOCAL console?
    • Or you cannot connect from a REMOTE console?

    What response do you get from the connection attempt?
