  • Windows Update Service (WSUS) 3.0 uninstalled but not reinstalled

    Hi All
    I Have managed to uninstall the Windows update sdervice 3.0 from the SBS 2008 SP2 systems , but cannot reinstall it

    the main issue is that i do not really need this service runing but apperantly the |SBS does

    we need to update to rollup 3 but from what ive read and searched forever w/o success is that it can be obtained only by synching WSUS

    when i am trying to reinstall it from Server manager\roles add i get this
    [
    Windows Server Update Services: Installation failed

    <Error>: The update could not be found. Either the update is not applicable to this computer or the update no longer exists. Verify that the update still exists and is applicable to this computer from your WSUS server or Windows Update.
    ]

    and from the SBS console\ updates says it is not installed properly with the edition of the respective public key and tokens
    why cant i add this service
    and whether i can leave w/o it
    and lastly where can get rollup 3 for sbs2008 sp2

    Yours

    I Am posting a self reply for my issues with WSUS 2008
    it was awsom to find it - thanks to Mat's Tech Blog on http://techblog.mirabito.net.au/?p=58
    < ----here is the juice
    It’s a relatively quick fix though – Just delete “HKLMSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindowsWindowsUpdate ”, restart the Windows Update service (wuauserv) and then you should be good to go

    worked like charm
