Event ID 12022 - The Client Web Service is not working. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,  I recently just installed WSUS on a Windows 2016 member server but I'm keep getting in Event ID 12022 error where the The client web service is not working.  currently I'm able to logon to WSUS, and clients settings being set through GPO, however no clients are able to register on the WSUS server.  I've checked everything but can't seem to find where the fault is... please help :)

    Also is there a Powershell command to enable "Use Group Policy or Registry settings on Computer"?

  • Fixed the issue now by using wsusutil usecustomwebsite true.  Originally set to false but couldn't get it to work.
