For the life of us we cannot install WSUS on our SCCM 2012 R2 server.

We tried the \wsusutil.exe postinstall SQL_INSTANCE_NAME="ABC\SUSDB" CONTENT_DIR=X:\WSUS

We keep getting this error message below, and the highlighted part is the problem.

The account we are using has access to 'local admin' rights of the SCCM box. Also access to SQL

We have the proper permissions on the folder, adding also Network Service, etc.

We cannot get WSUS up and running and keep hitting a wall.   It will not create WSUS website

Any suggestions would help.

Questions:

1- Do you have another WSUS in your environment and you need to use it with ConfigMgr or you are trying to install WSUS on ConfigMgr server and use it for software update ?

2- Did you install and uninstall WSUS before getting this error ?

3- Are you using SQL Express ?
