Hello Guys,

   I have a problem regarding WSUS on SBS 2003; Microsoft.SBS.UpdateServices.SyncSecurity.exe process runs constantly eating up 100% CPU and bogging my server down.

   Can anyone tell me how to kill the sucker? It is WSUS 3.0 SP2.

thanks!

Does your server have a full 4 GB of RAM?
Have you run the SBS BPA?
Do you have an SQL Databases running (besides monitoring)

Hello, I have found and fixed some issues, but they seem unrelated.

Microsoft.SBS.UpdateServices.SyncSecurity.exe is still 100%. It goes up and down every here and now.

Any ideas?

If you go into the WSUS Console, how often is it set to synchronize?  At what time?

There is something wrong with the service; it seems not working. It says that MSSQL. :|

It seems inoperable.

Can I reinstall the WSUS somehow?

If you renamed .exe files that are part of the application, they will have to be renamed back to the original name and the server restarted.  Then you should be able to get into the console.

Uninstalling WSUS in SBS 2003 can be a nightmare...better to try to fix the actual problem

I've noted that just as an info so you know what I did. Had trouble finding service that was the problem, so instead I've stopped the file from execution.

Anyways, it seems I have a serious problem with the server. The server returns a series of errors when I try to access update services.

It seems, however, that I've managed to get the server to stop acting up, so I have a calm processor and memory activity now.

Could you please tell me what could I do to try to fix this WSUS problem? Some resource or something?

The BPA was great!

to be honest, repairing WSUS 3.0 on SBS 2003 can be a real nightmare and can leave you in a state worse that you are now because it involves removing  WSUS and SUS and Monitoring and the reinstallation.

This is one of those times when the best solution is calling Microsoft Support, spend the 250.00 and let them help you with it.    You'll wind up in a much better state than you are now.
