SBS 2008 windows internal database corrupt

Dear Experts,

I have an SBS 2008 server.  Recently I have been having a few problems and after probing around, i'm certain that the windows internal database is corrupt.

How can I delete and rebuild it.

thanks

What problems exactly?  What related errors in the event logs or messages on screen and so on.  That is to ask, why do you suspect problems and what points you to the internal DB?

You really do need to post the error messages that lead you to this conclusion because rebuilding the database may not be the solution for your problem.

Fair enough.  I'm attaching a screen shot of the error.  When I run checkdb, theres a load of errors that come back too.  

I was going to try the following: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd443475(v=ws.10).aspx 

Would that help?

Did you run DBCC CHECKDB and/or DBCC CHECKTABLE as the error message suggested?

yeah, and a load of errors came up.  Is there any way to wipe it and start again?  Its only the SUSDB database and I can always just re-sync it.

Then, yes, follow the repair guide you linked above.

Done that.  It didn't really do much though.  Following the guide, at the point "To manually recover Windows Server Update Services" at point 2, it asks that if the WSUS installation exists, then skip to step 4.

Form there on in its just configuring the service which is already done. I have verified all of the GPOs and everything was in place. No repair really took place.

If I uninstalled WSUS, could I manually remove the SUSDB from the internal database and then reinstall from scratch?

Ah... you didn't mention that you removed WSUS.

Please make sure you followed this procedure to do that:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_27073388.html#a35890160

So at this point, I would get WSUS back up and running so that the internal DB is restored, then remove WSUS as I suggest in the link above.
