We have been running SCCM 2012 SP1 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 environment with only 1 primary site and no secondary sites. Are issue is the Update database is so big we have no more space on the server. I can add more space, but it just takes that as well. I have looked at the Microsoft Tech Net articles as well as other articles mentioning about a script to remove expired updates, WSUS cleanup wizard etc. It does not clear any updates out at all, even the schedules times for cleanup appears not to be working. We basically use SCCM 2012 to push endpoint updates and windows updates. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance

Thanks for that info. I ended up shrinking the database log files which were 50G and now it's only 10 MG. This freed up the space your post was helpful after this fact.

thanks
