Adding another WSUS server to an existing database

We have one WSUS server utilizing a SQL 2012 R2 database.  I need to use the same WSUS database on a second WSUS server.  When I go through the wizard it doesn't ask me to use the same database, just the SQL server.  Are there instructions on how to use a second WSUS server to use the same Database?  I appreciate the help!  I would love to get an answer quick if possible!
