        Did you check this?
        "An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections."


        Using that there are quite a few things on google

            It was a quote from your post. Can you connect to the instance properly?

              Check whether all the required service is running like WWW,Webclient,Automatic updates,SQL service.

              Try to restart the server once and check for uninstallation.

                Dear Andy

                I'm really sorry , i didn't pay attention to that phrase in the middle if the log , thats why i thought your reply is not the one which fits my need.


                sorry again


                and to rjegadeesh

                i think my problem is because of neither of the things discussed ,,,,i think the best solution is the reinstall windows 2k3 and also wsus from scratch !!!

                  This does seem a bit drastic!
                  And what if you hit the problem again in the future?

                        Re: cannot uninstall WSUS 3 SP1

                        I just want to confirm that you are using a full blown version of SQL 2005 for this and not the usual MSDE version that installs with WSUS.
                        1 1 was a racehorse.
                        2 2 was 1 2.
