It costs me today only 5 hours to solve a really anoying problem. Everything was wonderfull, because I was configuring SSL for WSUS-IIS on port 8531. The WSUS console could also connect succesfull, the only problem was that SCCM SMS_WSUS_CONTROL_MANAGER was writing Error 7000 and 7003.

If you run wsusutil.exe checkhealth then you get the following Event ID 12002, 12052, 12042, 12022, 12032, 12012.

wsusutil.exe configuressl (servername to whome the certificate was issued to –> Capital writing is essential)


It had to be exactly the same name which is in the issued to in the Web Server certificate.

Hope that will help somebody. Smiley
