The server thats is also running WSUS failed to install its updates and was stuck in Win Logo screen.
The only way i could get it to boot is to manually remove all pending updates using DISM cmd.
From this guide.
Now my server boots but WSUS is not working. I think some other updates may have been removed which made the WSUS install older than the WID database
I cant load the mmc, i tried deleting the mmc file. But it wont connect its complaining about the DB.
And also running the post install steps failed saying the DB is not same version as WSUS and I need to patch WSUS
C:\Windows\system32>"C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe" postinstall /servicing
Log file is located at C:\Users\administrator\AppData\Local\Temp\2\tmpF11.tmp
Post install is starting
Fatal Error: Changes to the state or options of database 'SUSDB' cannot be made at this time. The database is in single-user mode, and a user is currently connected to it.
ALTER DATABASE statement failed.
Since the issue is on WSUS server it cant update it self
Right now im trying to point it to MS Updates and get the latest updates from Internet instead if it self.
Here are some errors I see in event log.

Ideally id like to fix this without loosing my WSUS db or data.
