SBS 2011 - After Migration - WSUSService service is Stopped

Just finished my first SBS 2011 migration from SBS 2003.
This was using a combination of the official MS Doc and the great guide on this site.

A few thing have come up and I will raise them separately

I keep getting this Alert, Can you please confirm which Service would be sending this as I believe all that services that should be started are started.

PS the SBS 2011 has been fully patched by Windows Update.


Alert on SERVER at 5/2/2011 12:10:07 PM

WSUSService service is Stopped.

This service enables the download of Windows Updates to this Windows Server Update Services Server.

For more information about this event, see the event logs on the server computer. You can restart this service by using the View Services task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting task-pad.

You can disable this alert by using the Change Alert Notifications task.

SBS 2011 does set up WSUS by default. This alert is letting you know that WSUS is not getting updates, so you do have a service issue you will needto address if you plan on using WSUS.
