The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is used by WSUS Synchronization Manager, a component for software updates in Configuration Manager 2007, when connecting to Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) running on the active software update point to initiate software updates synchronization. When the FQDN is not valid, the connection will fail. Use the following procedure to verify the FQDN on the site system where the active software update point is installed.
To verify the FQDN settings for the software update point site system
In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems.
Right-click the site system where the active software update point is installed, and then click New Role.
Verify that the Specify a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for this site system on the intranet option is selected and that the Intranet FQDN value is correct. When the site is in native mode, verify that the Internet FQDN value is correct.
If the FQDN settings are correct, click Cancel to exit the wizard, and skip the last step of this procedure.
Click Next, click Next again without selecting any new site roles, click Next once more, and then click Close.
