I have a problem with my WSUS3.0 on SBS2003. I customized my options for microsoft products I want to recieve updates for and now I'm getting the error "Windows Small Business Server (Windows SBS) Update Services is not running because it automatically turns off if you customize Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). For a list of specific settings that cause Windows SBS Update Services to turn off, see the Microsoft Web site. Even if WSUS is managing updates for your network, the accuracy of the status in the Windows SBS monitoring report or on the Update Services home page cannot be guaranteed. To use Windows SBS Update Services, reverse the changes that you have made to WSUS or reinstall Windows SBS 2003 R2."

I've seen quite a few posts on other forums about this but most of them are saying to revert the changes made.
Is there any other way of making this work?

Thanks

Yeah, I did see the article before but it wasnt that useful. I switched it back to "All Microsoft Products" again and it is working but my orginal problem was making it work with the selection of products i wanted.
Thanks
