An error occurred trying to connect the WSUS server…

I had this error today, WSUS is installed on Windows server 2016 and used for managing Windows Server updates to several of my Exchange servers. This error appeared today and below is what I did to fix it.

When you click on “reset server node”, nothing happens , the error just reappears. Also you will find event id 7032 windows server update services in the event viewer of your server.

Solution:

  1. Open up IIS – internet information services manager on the affected node

2. locate WSUSpool, by clicking on “Application Pools” after expanding the connections tree from the IIS console

You will see the WsusPool status is “stopped”

3. Start the service

4. Now go back to your WSUS console and click on “reset server node” and after a while it should work and all servers can be found again and you can proceed with your windows updates.
