  • Unable to repair WSUS

    Hi there,

    Im trying to repair the WSUS install on our SBS 2008 box as it wouldnt install WSUS SP2. Following the guide at

    http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/arch...-sbs-2008.aspx

    I get the error

    2011-05-23 07:52:52 Error MWUSSetup DoInstall: ParseCommandLine failed (Error 0x80041453)

    In the WSUS update log. Has anyone any ideas?

    Thanks

      Thanks for the info - I had stumbled across this initially. The problem I had was:

      1. Uninstall Database engine (SQL for WSUS) from Add/Remove Programs (sorry, I can't remember the real name)

      I cant seem to find any SQL WSUS apps installed - am I missing something?

      Thanks

        with SQL, if you have multiple instances, you need to atually select the SQL installer itself, tne you can select which nistance you want to remove

          Thanks - I did this prior to the remove but I think that it didnt remove the WSUS instance properly.

          I have just ran the exe from E:\CMPNENTS\WSUS and removed WSUS manually. Next is to repair

          Will update as I go

            So Ive repaired WSUS - now I am unable to connect to RWW via the web. Im guessing its IIS related as I havent changed anything with RWW.

            The plot thickens...

              Fixed - a restart of IIS and checked the terminal services service all is well... Cheers!
