WSUS is still running from within SBS 2008 Console

The fix of reinstalling WSUS worked in that WSUS is installed.

Strangely, it took nearly 7 hours to download the entire databsse of about 1.52G.   When I installed sbs on this same box over a year ago, the initial download did not take that long.

However, while the stand-alone WSUS app seems to be running and finding updates properly, the SBS Console interface still reports: "An error occurred while refreshing information about the updates."

I'd rather use the "thinner" interface of the SBS console because I understand it.

For the record in the "Products and Classifications" tabs all items are selected.

Its probably more like 15.2 or 152 GB of data. Thats why it took so long.
