I'm evaluating Patch Manager but can't even manage to add my WSUS server unfortunately.
I get the following error:
Server: <wsus hostname>
Message: Exception occurred at 16/03/2016 16:40:46: The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized. WSUSConnection::Unable to connect to the WSUS Server (<wsus host>) using the account:<domain admin> The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.
I can see that several other people have had the same issue, so I have gone through the KB article, checked the user account is admin, member of local WSUS Admins etc.to no avail.
Patch Manager and WSUS are on separate servers but both are Win 2012.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
I can connect fine using the IP address (DNS resolution is OK though) so not sure why the hostname returns a 401, but at least I have a workaround!
