SCCM reinstall WSUS SUSDB

  1. Stop the following services via PowerShell
  2. Open up SQL Management Studio and delete the “SUSDB”
  3. Next you need to delete the content directory.  In my case it is called “S:\WSUS”.  Delete the folder and all its contents.  If you need to find where your content directory is stored open up regedit and navigate to the following location under the key named “ContentDir” it will have location specified.
  4. Now recreate the folder called WSUS
  5. Start the following services via PowerShell
  6. Open PowerShell and navigate to the following location “C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools”. Run the following command.  This will perform the reinstallization of the SUSDB.  When running this on a high powered machine with SSDs it still took around 15 minutes to complete.

    7. Once completed open up the WSUS Console itself and follow the wizard to start the First Synchronization.  The initial synchronization can take several hours to complete depending upon the amount of products selected.
