wsus db

Hi.

We recently installed a trial version of mssql 2008. The trial has run out and the sql service has stopped running.

The Problem is our WSUS server db is on that instance and now I can not open the microsoft windows server update service sp1 snap in. I get a connection error.

From event viewer I get: event id 7032

The WSUS administration console was unable to connect to the WSUS Server via the remote API.

Verify that the Update Services service, IIS and SQL are running on the server. If the problem persists, try restarting IIS, SQL, and the Update Services Service.

Please can some help.
I can't see any option on the snap in regarding  settings.

Recover the MDF and LDF files from the SQL Server. Uninstall SQL Server, download SQL Server 2008 Express Edition and install that. Then, attempt to mount the recovered database files as a new SQL server database called 'SUSDB'.

If that doesn't work, I'd remove the SUSDB from SQL Server 2008 Express and then uninstall and reinstall WSUS. That will properly recreate and reconfigure the database, and isn't too much work.

If you plan on using the product past the trial period, I'd recommend purchasing it :)

Also,  why in the world would you install trial software on a production server?
