WSUS 3 on SBS2008 not working
Posted on 2014-10-14
I'm having some issues with WSUS on my SBS 2008 box. This all started when an HD died. After installing a new replacement drive I noticed that a new PC that I was trying to deploy was constantly failing on installing certain updates (the same ones).
I figured it was due to corrupted updates in WSUS (due to the HD failing) so I read that in order to re-download updates for WSUS, I had to run the wsusutil reset command.
I ran that command 2 weeks ago, and i'm not sure if it did anything but all i know now is that wsus is not working.
When I start the Update Services MMC, i can't view anything under the Updates Node. It sits there and eventually crashes because it times out.
If i go to the Options node and try to change the email settings for example, I get a notice at the bottom of the popup window that says "Cannot save configuration because the server is still processing a previous configuration change"
How do I figure out what its trying to process?
BTW, I did re-boot the server and that didn't change anything.
