WSUS replica servers failing to sync

I have a main WSUS server and four WSUS replica servers. The four replica servers started failing between one and two months ago. The list of synchronizations for all four replica servers shows failed/unknown result. I try to do a manual sync but that fails as well.

I found the following error listed in the synchronizations tab on one of the replica servers.

SoapException: Fault occurred
at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.ReadResponse(SoapClientMessage message, WebResponse response, Stream responseStream, Boolean asyncCall)
   at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.Invoke(String methodName, Object[] parameters)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSyncWebServices.ServerSync.ServerSyncProxy.GetUpdateData(Cookie cookie, UpdateIdentity[] updateIds)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSync.CatalogSyncAgentCore.WebserviceGetUpdateData(UpdateIdentity[] updateIds, List`1 allMetadata, List`1 allFileUrls, Boolean isForConfig)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSync.CatalogSyncAgentCore.GetUpdateDataInChunksAndImport(List`1 neededUpdates, List`1 allMetadata, List`1 allFileUrls, Boolean isConfigData)
   at Microsoft.UpdateServices.ServerSync.CatalogSyncAgentCore.ExecuteSyncProtocol(Boolean allowRedirect)

The replica servers are running server 2008 R2 and the main WSUS server is running server 2003 R2.

I tried to restart the servers but that does not help. I also tried running the WSUS server configuration wizard on one of the replica servers. One of the synchronizations completed but then the following initial sync failed again.

Any thoughts on how I can resolve this?

I appreciate your help.

Also, I just found that all four of my replica servers are flooded with these event logs.

Log Name: Application
Source: MSSQLSERVER
Date: 12/16/2013 12:41:35 AM
Event ID: 1105
Task Category: (2)
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: NETWORK SERVICE
Computer: CRDC
Description:
Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.tbEventInstance'.'PK__tbEventInstance__10B661E4' in database 'SUSDB' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup.

Log Name: Application
Source: MSSQLSERVER
Date: 12/16/2013 12:41:35 AM
Event ID: 1827
Task Category: (2)
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: NETWORK SERVICE
Computer: CRDC
Description:
CREATE DATABASE or ALTER DATABASE failed because the resulting cumulative database size would exceed your licensed limit of 4096 MB per database.

I am using SQL Express on all four servers. How can I make the DB smaller or do I need to use another way to store my DB? What is recommended?

Thanks,

Justin

You are running sql server express version which is limited as the last error message says to 5GB

Usually, you can install WSUS with its own SQL server instance that does not have this limit.  You seems to have choosen to use an installed instance of SQL express.

An option is to upgrade the sql instance that you currently have to sql 2008/12 express which should correct this issue.

Someone else suggested I migrate to WID. Which would be better? Do you know a link to a guide for migrating from 2005 to 2008?

thanks,

Justin

If you have the space, install 2008 as another instance, and then migrate.

If this is the only database nd since it is a replica, you can go ahead and run an upgrade.
