Windows Server Update Services unable to connect to MYSQL database.
Posted on 2008-10-02
I'm running WSUS 3.1 (with SP1) installed on a Windows 2003 enterprise server with SP2. It is in a AD domain. It is connected to MYSQL database.
Its all on the 64 bit platform!
Everything was working fine until we installed Service Pack 1 onto MS Exchange 2007.
After we rebooted for the Exchange update, WSUS 3.1 gave me this message when trying to access the WSUS Administrator Console:
Error connecting to the Windows Server Update Services database
There was an error connecting to the Windows Server Update Services database. Either the database is not available or you do not have the correct privileges to access the database.
If you believe you have received this message in error, please check with your system administrator.

So far, Ive tried re-installing WSUS. Re-configuring IIS. Only thing I havn't looked at yet is the MYSQL setup as I'm not 100% on the inner workings yet.
