WSUS on SCCM server 2012 R2 not completing post install

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.

I can see that you are having this issue from Feb 2014.

Please download WSUS30-KB972455-x64.exe from http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=5216 and run it manually.

Instead of the WID, use an actual SQL DB. It should install or at least give another error.

First off Server 2012 uses WSUS 4.0 (WSUS 3.0 sp2 is not supported), secondly you need to install WSUS using the Add roles wizard.

Are you installing WSUS from Server Manager -> Dashboard -> Add Roles and features -> Server Role -> Windows Server Update Service.  ???
