We had a customer recently that needed to setup a second Software Update Point (SUP) to support internet clients. We ran into a strange issue after the SUP role was installed. The WSUSCrtl.log was reporting the following error: “system.net.webexcption: the request failed with the HTTP status 404”. Another test system had an error like this one:
The solution we found by trial and error (not a lot was to be had via the web)….the trick it seems is to NOT have the WSUS server role have a download location. Which after thinking about it makes sense – no need to download the content, the first SUP has that already.
So when you need to setup a second SUP in the same site don’t forget this:
Now go patch those internet clients…and enjoy.
