Clients not appearing in a new Windows Server 2012 WSUS Server

I just implemented a new WSUS Server running on top of Windows Server 2012 called "ADM-WSUS-01" and configured clients to connect to the WSUS server using the group policy setting "Specify intranet Microsoft update service location".  After a few days I checked back and noticed no clients had yet reported to the WSUS server.


After investigating I discovered in Server 2012 Microsoft changed the default WSUS port to 8530.  WSUS port by default was always port 80 in Server 2003 and Server 2008.

 
Changing my group policy to point workstations at HTTP://ADM-WSUS-01:8530 resolved the problem.

  1. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile.

  2. I changed this in my group policy alread. I have the GPO set up to http:\\"internalWSUSserver":8530

    No clients have reported in, but, when looking at the two test clients I am working with for the new WSUS, in regedit, under policies-windows update, the WSUS server is listed as defined by the GPO along with the computer group they will be assigned to.

    Any advice?

    I can supply screen shots when needed.

    Thanks in advance

    P.S. the GPO was just implemented today, should I give it some time? I have tried various commands such as gpupdate /force, wuauclt /detectnow, wuauclt /reportnow

    I tried a wuauserv net stop and net start

    I also tried rebooting the new WSUS and the two test clients that are supposed to be checking in to it.

    No change in my situation.

    At the time of writing this question, it has been 24 hours since stand up and all of these fixes were attempted.

    Thanks again.
