Hello,

I'm receiving the following error:

 

WSUS Configuration Manager failed to configure upstream server settings on WSUS Server

 

Possible cause: WSUS Server version 3.0 SP2 or above is not installed or cannot be contacted.
Solution: Verify that the WSUS Server version 3.0 SP2 or greater is installed. Verify that the IIS ports configured in the site are same as those configured on the WSUS IIS website.

 

WSUS Configuration Manager will not be able to configure WSUS Server "CMServerName.domain.local" as the WSUS Server remoting API's of version 3.0 SP2 or greater are not installed on this site server.

 

WCM.log

Failed to create assembly name object for Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration. Error = 0x80131701.

Remote configuration failed on WSUS Server.

Setting new configuration state to 3 (WSUS_CONFIG_FAILED)

 

I've removed SUP role, IIS and Software Update Service and re-installed again without luck, SUP on separated server, it was working without issues.

Solution
You'll need to install the WSUS console on your site server (not the full WSUS role). It can be found under the Remote Administration Tools in the Features (from the top of my head). The WCM needs the WSUS console modules in order to access the remote SUP.

@Michiel Overweel Thanks for update.

As mentioned SUP was working fine, I'm still not sure what happen exactly, so what I did basically I removed WSUS console from Remote Administration Tools restart the server and re-install again, then the sync start, I've checked everything except this one :).

and what confusing is the last change I did is to configure "Use Configuration Manager-generated certificates for HTTP site systems."
