WSUS 3 - replica server fails to replicate approved updates

Hi All

We've recently made one of our servers a replica and enabled rollup
reporting, but even though I cannot approve updates on the replica (grayed
out) it has significantly different amount of approved updates. Master has
1K+ the replica only 400 or so.

Also I'm not convinced that it's rolling up the reports either as the
emailed reports from both servers are significantly different.

What am I doing wrong?

Any help much appreciated.

Ah Ha - I see why, the sync log shows sync failures (detailed error below).

But the replica can connect to the master with no problem. Have tested the
following links and all ok:

https://compname:ourport/iuident.cab
https://compname:ourport/selfupdate/iuident.cab
https://compname:ourport/clientwebservice/wusserverversion.xml
https://compname:ourport/simpleauthwebservice/simpleauth.asmx
https://compname:ourport/SelfUpdate/wuident.cab

The replica can clearly coms with the master but it still fails to sync?

I tried:
https://compname:ourport/serversyncwebservice/serversyncwebservice.asmx

as I suspect this is the site that allows sync, it connected but I'm not
sure what the result should be (if any)?



WebException: The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.

It's not synchronizing because you have misconfigured the URL of the
upstream server.

HTTP 404 -- Not Found -- means the URL you supplied does not actually exist.

This is a natural artifact of converting an autonomous server to a replica:

[a] The former autonomous server keeps all of the approvals not synchronized
because the updates do not exist on the upstream server.
[b] The new replica server also gets any approvals that it did not
previously have after synchronizing with the upstream server.
