WSUS on SBS 2003 R2 setup and configuration help

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I tried to install WSUS 3.0 SP1 onto my SBS 2003 R2 server and it's not working.  I have no Update area on the Server Management page, WSUS cannot see any computers, etc.  Does WSUS 2.0 need to be installed first?

I've seen the Installing Microsoft Windows Server Update Services 3.0 on Windows Small Business Server 2003 document from Microsoft, but it doesn't work.

I've uninstalled it again and rebooted the server.  I await instruction to make this work.
