    Hi colleagues,

    i get this error message everytime i try to launch WSUS

    Log file is located at C:UsersAdministrator.KENYAAppDataLocalTemptmp1A5C.tmp
    Post install is starting
    Fatal Error: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.

    What happened is i deleted some files, some were under drive C – that were filling up space, i tried to change the updates storage place to another drive, but despite trying to remove and add the role WSUS, it doesnt go past the post installation

    I had tried to removed ‘WSUS Administration’ website and the ‘WsusPool’ Application Pool in IIS , after removing the role, but despite restarting the server and adding it back, i now cannot see in IIS the WSUS administration and pool sites.

    the log file is as below

    What is drive F: pointing to? Is this a local drive or partition or a network share? BTW, it should NOT be a network share.
