A few days ago I asked if anyone would be interested in an article/tip about setting up WSUS. The response was somewhat underwhelming (and focus quickly turned to the fact that I use a 10-year old version of OneNote) so I decided not to bother.

Anyway. I've been struggling with getting clients to connect to it ever since. Until this morning, when I changed the policy that names the WSUS server to include the port at the end of the string (:8530). After making that change, and then refreshing the policy on client endpoints, they started trickling in almost immediately.

This wasn't necessary before. The port hasn't changed. Why it's suddenly needed in this version, I don't know. Or when it became a requirement, I don't know (it could've been introduced in 2012, 2012 R2, 2016 or 2019...and I'm not about to review the documentation for each to try to find out).

The lesson, I guess, is don't take anything for granted...like assuming newer versions work the same as old versions (even though, based purely on the UI, you'd think MS hasn't done any change to WSUS).
