Thx for the note - I will do this over night.  My main problem right now is that the space on the WSUS server is fuill and the WSUS cleanup tool creashes.  My priority is to get space back, then remove.  I had had to remove the WSUS GPO from AD thus preventing any furter update activity.

Any comments you would like to share on the space issue?

A bit more research need to be sure that I understood the unistall process - done. This returned much need space on this server.  I deployed a 3rd party update solution while I upgrade the server.

I am using GFI RMM and  activated thier Patch Management system.  It is not a s robust as WSUS but it will do in a pinch.  I will be deploying LPI at the end of the month and will llikely use thier patch management tool rather than going back to WSUS.
