One of our customers who uses WSUS are running very low on disk space, currently they average out between 7-15GB free. This is resulting in my backups failing.
I have tried running WSUS Server cleanup wizard (currently uses 20GB) with no change to disk space, the console itself keeps disconnecting when i am trying to sort out All updates with the following parameters;
Approval - Any except declined
Status - Any
Then i try to sort updates in superseded order, so i can decline them.
I suppose the question i am asking is I need to delete the wsus database file "SUSDB.mdf" which is taking up 20gb of space.
I have attached a few things that may be useful including things that i have tried and the disconnection error i get with thew wsus console., please don't hesitate to ask for more. I have listed below some of the server specs including WSUS information;
Windows SBS Server 2008 SP2
- Intel Xeon CPU E5520@2.27GHz
- 8GB Ram
WSUS Console 3.0 SP1
I have tried the information in the following link with no luck;
