  • Hi,

    You need to provide some more information.

    Such as when did the problem first occur; did it happend after a reboot or newly installed patch?

    Are the required services running?

    Are you using any dedicated service accounts?

    Do you use a dedidcated sql server or windows internal database?

    Are you trying to connect to the console from the WSUS server it self?

    Any obvious errors in windows event log?

    Not checked

    On monday night we approved April month patches on systems after that Server D drive where we saved all patches that drives get almost full, Currently having 7GB Free space. After that only we faced this issue.

  • Okay.

    There are few places I would check out.

    The IIS application pool on the WSUS server, to see if they're all started.

    The SQL server log, to see if there should be any authentication issues or other errors.

    The windows eventlog, to see if there are any general errors.

    General resource availability, such as disk and memory.

    Also, its microsoft after all so maybe a simple service or server restart will fix the issue.

    Pls try the solution from here:

    After you set this settings, restart the whole server.

  • Just want to add my solution, for me it was down to the SSL certificate having expired.
