    I had wsus server that was working alright until a nasty power breakdown occurred.:mad:
    The result was that wsus database went corrupted and wsus console was out of reach…:shock:
    I checked at technet forums what my options are, and found out that it will be a lot easier to reinstall wsus from the beginning than to bother with repairing corrupted database.

    So I did. I run installation package, and it removed previous version of wsus from the system. I did not choose the option to remove downloaded updates and patches

    The result:
    my brand new installed wsus is completely empty (as expected after all…):roll:

    question:
    can I, somehow, import updates and patches I had before the breakdown, or I have to synchronize the server like I never had it on the system.
