I am hoping to get some help as I have just about run through everything that I can think of. I am unable to successfully connect to the WSUS server after installing POSHWSUS module.
I am installing POSHWSUS 2.1.1 downloaded from codeplex and have tried installing on a Server 2008R2 WSUS server and a fresh Server 2012 WSUS server and get the same behavior (so I am almost positive it is something I am doing incorrectly!).
The first difference from the documentation for install that I experience is that the result of the 'get-module -listavailable' command does indeed show that it has picked up the POSHWSUS module in the path in my documents (c:\users\username\documents\WindowsPowerShell\modules\POSHWsus)
but in the powershell window (which is being run as administrator) shows that POSHWSUS is ModuleType Script instead of Manifest as it shows in all the documentation and discussions I could find. Upon issuing the command import-module POSHWSUS it succeeds and
Make initial connection to WSUS Server: Connect-PoshWSUSServer
Disconnect from WSUS Server: Disconnect-PoshWSUSServer
List all available commands: Get-PoshWSUSCommand
But when I use the command Connect-PoshWSUSServer -WSUSServer server1.domain.local I receive
Warning: Unable to connect to server1.domain.local
no matter if I try the IP or the NetBIOS name or anything else I cant get past this error. I also tried connecting and adding -debug -verbose but no additional information is provided besides that warning message.
I have tried different combinations across different servers (all with WSUS installed) but receive the same warning message and the module always shows up as the type script.
Is the manifest vs. script the root of this problem?
