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,

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

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.

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

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.

Simon ChenNetwork AdministratorAuthor Commented:
I don't know how old the data I should use for that. Is possible use sp1 uninstall the WSUS database and reinstall again? Will that affect other software?

David AtkinIT ProfessionalCommented:
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
