WSUS Internal Server Problem and System Center 2012 R2 DPM Issues

Encountered two issues today that need to be noted real quick:

  1. WSUS was giving me a ton of problems with not updating on client machines. Error after error, and I was completely puzzled because I had everything configured correctly. Turns out Microsoft change their port in WSUS from 80 to 8530, so in your internal addressing, you have to add that like this to make it work:
  2. System Center 2012 R2 DPM was giving me problems with Replica Inconsistencies. So to fix this, I updated it, and found out that Windows Server Backup feature needs to be installed along with Visual C++, and possibly WinRE disabled. Links below.
