SBS2011 standard, reinstalled WSUS 3 I need Service Pack 3

Hello All,

After an update to SP3 on WSUS on one of my servers, WSUS stopped working. I uninstalled WSUS and the database and reinstalled WSUS again. What I have on the original disks is SP2 for WSUS. Do I have to update WSUS again and update again to KB2720211 which caused WSUS to stop working in the first place? I have installed WSUS SP2 successfully and am now choosing what updates to download and am doing a manual synchronization. I removed the previous WSUS via this link: 

What steps do I have to do to integrate WSUS into my management console? Do I need KB2720211 which is Service Pack 3?

After re installed the WSUS, It will automatically integrate WSUS into your management console.  If you want to install service pack -3  (KB2720211 ) you can install.

Thank you for your help, sushil84. I did just that. I have not instsalled sp3 yet but here is the message I get with sp2. I went through the link in the box and have no success. Will sp3 help me? Thank you again. You are right, the program did integrate into sbs. And wsus now integrates. It says that I did some customization on wsus. Should I have just installed WSUS and done all the synchronzation through the sbs module and not the wsus module? I downloaded all the updates through wsus...I am think I should of done it through sbs instead.

The issue required uninstalling WSUS. Install all updates. Then the synchronization started again. but some pcs are missing from the list. Took two restarts for WSUS to work integrated in the sbs standard console. Also, had to run a new .VBS and .SQL scripts from Microsoft's KB. Somthing about the 2am WSUS update cleaning script not being right. It is working now.
