Cleaning up WSUS Failed Upgrade on SBS 2008

My post yesterday was about an issue a friend had with their SBS 2008 server.  Basically I was unsure as to how the suscomp.dll got removed from the server at all and why it totally broke all their websites on their SBS 2008 server.  It turns out that the system tried to install WSUS 3.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and as part of that process it removes WSUS 3.0 SP1 and the associated suscomp.dll file.

So how do you go about fixing this problem?  Fortunately for me, Microsoft have written this repair guide that allows you to at least get WSUS 3.0 SP1 back into operation without too much pain.  I followed the step here to get WSUS 3.0 SP1 installed again.  I had to do this last year on my own server when WSUS 3.0 SP2 failed too, but I never did get around to figuring out what went wrong.  Anyway – I used the Microsoft process but could not use restore the WSUS Database as there was no backup.  Followed the Microsoft Guide to get it working though.

I then proceeded to manually download WSUS 3.0 SP2 so that I could install it interactively.  This gives me the best chance of seeing just what went wrong and fixing it.  The install process ran fine all the way through to the end.  No errors… grr.  I checked the SBS Remote Web Workplace website and OWA and all works fine.  More grrr…  Oh well – it’s working now.  I would have liked to see what caused the problem but I’ve got no idea Sad smile

    It shouldn’t have to be said, but you should also insist they take
    a shower after work. These are certainly some of the important tips when it comes to getting the best deal out of hiring a plumber.

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m
    still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for newbie blog
    writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    Unquestionably consider that that you said. Your favourite
    reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to have in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as
    other folks consider concerns that they plainly do not
    recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly
    as defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other folks can
    take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thank you

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!
