Our WSUS server stopped working around a week ago and we kept getting - Error: Connecting to database. I tried resetting the node but no good.
After a few days looking at recommended fixes i now have WSUS Update Services opening but the name of my server is now missing on the left hand tree menu ? I must have deleted it somehow following the online solutions - Please see image attached.
I now have Update Services in the left hand pane with a right click option to "Connect to Server". What server do i need to connect too ?
I have tried connecting to its own Server Name and its own IP address but it errors. I've also tried a list of Microsoft update addresses:
I am running WSUS version 3.2.76000.226 on a physical Windows Server 2003 R2 (Service Pack 2) box.
