    failed to retrieve update services server information

    SolarWinds Community Team



      I've installed the wsus expansion pack trial and added our wsus 3.0 sp1 to the list of update services servers.

      When opening the mmc on the "eminentware (wsus01) - enterprise - update services - wsus01" I get the error below.

      The expansion pack is installed on the same server as the wsus server.
