WSUS 3.0 sp2 and hotfix(ex)

A colleague called me last week asking why his freshly installed WSUS 3.0 sp2 can't synchronize with Microsoft site.
When looking in his SoftwareDistribution.log we saw:
Sync failed: UssCommunicationError: WebException: The request failed with the error message:~--~<html><head><title>Object moved</title></head><body>
WSUS server wasn't able to get anything from the Microsoft's source site

it looks like Microsoft has moved something somewhere :O

If you are installing a fresh WSUS 3.0 sp2, apply KB2734608
apparently, it doesn't only fix the issues specified, but also makes sure your WSUS will get the updates from the new location.

P.S. if you've got WSUS already up and running, perhaps you should apply this hotfix too ;)
