I had a server which hosted wsus, that crashed on me. i had to reinstall that
server and reinstall wsus. i have the original hard disk, and i want to avoid
re-downloading all the updates. i have tried the help file method of copying
the old database over the new installation, but i get database error messages.

please help

1. cannot reinstall WSUS after uninstalling

2. Reinstall WSUS SP1

To move the B/E SUSDB database to a different instance on the SAME server,
do the following:

[1] Shutdown the Update Services service on the F/E server.
[2] Detach the SUSDB from the old instance.
[3] Attach the SUSDB to the new (APPS) instance.
[4] Reperform Step 3 in Appendix C of the WSUS Deployment Guide to
reconfigure the F/E server to point to the new B/E instance.
[5] Start the Update Services service on the F/E server.
