WSUS SBS2011 remove database?
Posted on 2014-01-04
Im running a SBS2011 server and setup wsus so that every workstation gets its updates directly from MS and not from WSUS. But the WSUS database is now 14Gb big and nothing to decrease this size helps. I tried to run the cleanup tool from wsus after de-select all possible products to update. Also tried to use the SQL management tool to shrink the database. But it still remain 14Gb.
- I detach the WSUSDB and can remove the DB. But what is the impact?
- Is it possible to create an new (clean) wsus DB?
- I not use WSUS anymore, so it isnt't an issues when it's gone
