Event_ID 101, but WSUS is not installed

    Question

  • I am running Windows SBS 2003, but I do not use WSUS and I have uninstalled it.

    I receive a start up error with Event_ID: 1001

    The error description is:

    A fatal error occurred either while synchronizing the Update Services computer groups with Group Policy or while moving the Unassigned Computers group. To see a detailed log, create a file called SyncSecurity.Log in %SBSProgramDir%\Support, and then run SyncSecurity.exe again. The error returned was: Service wsusservice was not found on computer '.'.

    How do I prevent this error from reoccurring on start up?

    Based on that, the logical conclusion is that you've posted in the wrong forum.

    This is a manifestation of having improperly uninstalled WSUS from your SBS server, and you'll want to pursue the discussion of how to properly uninstall WSUS from an SBS2003 server in the SBS forum.

    But since you did post here.... Why do you not use WSUS?

  • We have a very small network (less than 5) there is no need for the overhead.
