I have a windows 2000 server that fails to complete windows updates.  I have researched the error code but have been unable to correct the issue.

In the event logs I am getting an error that points to the wuaueng.dll (1512) and to the file C:\WINNT\SoftwareDistribution|dataStore\Logs\edb.log

I sseems as though there was a WSUS or SUS server at one time on the network, but is no longer there.  How can I force the server to once again point to windows update site and not look for the WSUS server?
