I recently re-installed WSUS 3.0 on my SBS 2008 server. It appears to be working but a search for updates on the server or a workstation results in an error.  I can connect online for updates to Microsoft updates.  I'd like to get the WSUS feature repaired so that updates can be downloaded automatically.

I haven't installed that update on the re-install since it was the one that first crashed my WSUS application last June.

You must install this update or wsus clients will not be able to get updates from your WSUS.

The WU agent will be mismatched between clients and server until you do so.

I ran the cleanup wizard, created the backup and restore batch files, then downloaded the replacement update.  It all worked perfectly.

Many thanks for your considerable help.
