Can’t connect to WSUS 3 server from admin console 1


Ah yes, another day, another daft one that caught me out for 10 minutes.  I had installed WSUS 3 on a Windows 2k8R2 server and all was going swimmingly.  Logged in as the domain administrator on the server, all worked.  Then, I wanted to remote administrate WSUS rather than RDP.

I installed the console locally to my workstation and bang, no connection to server.  No polite errors such as “You need to be in the WSUS group” or anything, just a straight up “Can’t connect to server.”

Yes, it’s permissions.  Drop yourself in to the Domain group “WSUS-Admins” else you aren’t going to connect.

    I very much agree, Tracy Chu’s mouth is way too big and always shows her gum!Roxanne Tong is a lot btteer, deserved to be place at least among Top3!Carat Cheung looks not bad indeed but a bit not too “decent” type.
