and when I tried open SBS console to network tab, it crashed and stop working.  try to repair with CD, but didn't help.


error show :

an error occurred trying to connect the wsus server. this error can happen for a number of reasons.

The WSUS administration console was unable to connect to the WSUS Server via the remote API.

Verify that the Update Services service, IIS and SQL are running on the server. If the problem persists, try restarting IIS, SQL, and the Update Services Service.

The WSUS administration console has encountered an unexpected error. This may be a transient error; try restarting the administration console. If this error persists,

Try removing the persisted preferences for the console by deleting the wsus file under %appdata%\Microsoft\MMC\.

Hello,

First of all - Have you done this:

"Verify that the Update Services service, IIS and SQL are running on the server. If the problem persists, try restarting IIS, SQL, and the Update Services Service.

The WSUS administration console has encountered an unexpected error. This may be a transient error; try restarting the administration console. If this error persists,

I have restarted all the service, but still didn't fix, in %appdata%\Microsoft\MMC\, do I need to delete all the file? I check online there is 2 solution people said,
1. change access right on temp folder
2.change asp.net location.
but I changed both and seems still didn't fix the problem. I even try uninstall .net 3.5, still didn't work.

I have delete the WSUS file in the %appdata%\Microsoft\MMC\" folder, but when I try to create a new profile to connect the server, it said "Cannot connect to 'servername'", the server may be using another port or different secure sockets layer setting. even I try use SSL, it got the error said ,the secure sockets layer(SSL) certificate for this server could not be validated. what to do. please help.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hello,

Have you checked the event logs? Do you have any additional errors relating to WSUS or SQL?

Have you moved the WSUS Content or DB recently?

When running the WSUS Console are you doing so as Administrator.

Can you give me a screen shot of the error please?

event logs didn't say anything relate to WSUS or SQL, I didn't touch the WSUS for long long time since last time I run the system clean wizard. I use administrator login to do it

Ok,

Start > Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2005 > SQL Server Management Studio Express.

Fill in the following information and then click Connect
Server type: Database Engine
Servername: \\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query
Authentication: Windows Authentication

Expand Databases.  Is the 'SUSDB' listed?

Hello,

Sorry for the delay in my reply. Do you have a backup prior to the issue?  If so I would try restoring the Wsus database (rename the old ones) and see if it still has the issue.

Ideally you'd be best keeping Wsus to manage your updates but it is not essential.

Have you tried to follow this article?  It will go through the steps of repairing WSUS and creating a new DB:

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd443475%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

Removing WSUS won't affect Exchange or other programs.  It will affect the server updates and client updates.  If you remove only then you will have to alter some of the WSUS group policies in order to get the clients to update form Microsoft.

Not go ahead yet before I make sure what effect after I uninstall the dataBase, now u said no effect to exchange. That will be ok. Because I only use this server as domain exchange, DHCP and file server. I don't use upgrade to clients' Pc
