Windows SBS Consoles reports "Updates not Available"
Posted on 2014-02-16
My Windows SBS2008 server seems to be having trouble with WSUS. Some time ago, the server had a hard drive fail so the system was restored from backups using Symantec Backup Exec. The server functions OK (albeit a bit slow but that may be due to it only having 4Gb RAM. More RAM is on the way). On the Home screen of the SBS Console, it reports that Updates are not available so I removed the WSUS role and then reinstalled WSUS from a MS download. Both the remove and the install went through without any errors and all was looking hopeful but it still says Updates Not Available. When I click on the "?" for more help, it says "The Software Update configuration has been modified and no longer meets the recommended configuration". Surely if it's been uninstalled and re-installed it now should I would have thought.
