WSUS 3.0 SP2 on Server 2008 R2 x64

RPPreacher used Ask the Experts™
I am installing WSUS SP2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64.  The server has WINS and Print Services installed.  Nothing else.

I downloaded the x64 binaries from Microsoft for WSUS.

I install the IIS Role using Server Manager.

I am still getting "Windows Server Update Service 3.0 SP2 Setup cannot continue.  Please resolve the following issues, and the run the Setup again.  Internet Information Services (IIS) or additional IIS role services must be installed.  Please refer to Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2 release notes for more information about prerequisites."

I read the release notes and see no particular reference to IIS role services.

What am I missing?

You may be missing some of the IIS components for the role, compare your role to what's listed under 'c.' in this technet article:

From article:
c.If you are installing Web Server IIS, on the Web Server (IIS) page, click Next. On the Web Server (IIS) Role Services page, in addition to the default settings, select ASP.NET, Windows Authentication, Dynamic Content Compression, and IIS 6 Management Compatibility. If the Add Roles Wizard window appears, click Add Required Role Services. Click Next.
Thank you this nailed my problem. This is why I pay for the service !
