WSUS not configured error during Configuration Manager 2012 Software Update Point Installation


(Post courtesy Anil Malekani)

Recently I tried configuring Software Update Management in Configuration Manager 2012. After installing WSUS on the Configuration Manager 2012 box, I tried to install Software Update Point as a site role.

The Software Update Point role successfully installed, as per the SUPSetup.log file (under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs)

However, my updates still did not appear on the console. After checking the Site Component status for SMS_WSUS_SYNC_MANAGER and SMS_WSUS_CONFIGURATION_MANAGER I noticed errors as below

SMS_WSUS_SYNC_MANAGER: Message ID 6600

SMS_WSUS_CONFIGURATION_MANAGER: Message ID 6600

I checked under WCM.log (under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs), and found the following proxy error

=============================

I validated that the proxy had been configured correctly and my browser settings also contained the same settings.

Resolution: After spending some time I found that Configuration Manager 2012 uses the system account proxy settings, which were set to Automatically detect settings.

  1. Using the excellent PsExec utility, I opened a command prompt under the system account (using the –s parameter).
  2. Within this command prompt running as system, I launched Internet Explorer and removed proxy settings.
  3. Finally, updates started appearing in the console.
