Summary

I was trying to set up a new software update point on a remote server, post-installation of Software update point the Sync is not working. I got the following error:

Error : Failed to create assembly name object for Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration. Error = 0x80131701 & Setting new configuration state to 3 (WSUS_CONFIG_FAILED)

I checked the error details in the CMTrace error lookup option but couldn’t find much information. Mostly this error is related to WSUS not directly connected to SCCM/ Configuration Manager.

From Window Server 2016 & 2019, if we installing SUP role on remote Servers, need to install WSUS console on Primary site server connected to remote SUP server.

Install WSUS console (just console) on the SCCM Primary server to fix the above error!
