Could not delete the declined updates permanently
Posted on 2008-10-31
We have wsus 3.0 and we are trying to remove some 2000 unused,expired,declined and superseeded updates permanently....
(i) We tried using server cleanup wizard and it runs successfully but deletes 0 updates.
( ii)I also Downloaded, the WSUS Server Diagnostic Tool and Run the Server Diagnostic Tool with the PurgeUnneededFiles switch, but still no joy.
(iii) I also removed unneeded languages or product classifications that arent supported on our network.
(iv) I also tried wsusutil.exe deleteunneededrevisions but no luck
(v) I checked the content of the downloaded update files in C:\windows\WSUS\WSUSContent and it looks like it is deleted from the MSDE datbase but still my wsus console shows "2000 updates and 2500 total".....
How i do remove these updates permanently and my wsus console shows the actual updates ?
Can somebody guide me with some scripts to run against the MSDE database to clean,repair and shrink the database and log file.
