Have you checked the following links?
- Managing WSUS 3.0 Storage: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh328578(WS.10).aspx
- Migrating WSUS: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee822824(WS.10).aspx
The second link has the following info which might help:
Note If the source server is using Windows Internal Database, the database name is \\.\pipe\mssql$microsoft##ssee\sql\query
Hope this helps

Windows Internal Database uses SQL Server technology as a relational data store for Windows roles and features only, such as Windows SharePoint Services, Active Directory Rights Management Services, UDDI Services, Windows Server Update Services, and Windows System Resources Manager. Windows Internal Database is also known as Microsoft SQL Server Express Embedded Edition.
There are five main steps to the process of moving a database within Windows Internal Database:
1. Stop the affected services.
2. Detach the databases
3. Move the database files.
4. Reattach the databases.
5. Restart the services.
Detail process, please refer to this article:
Move Windows Internal Databases to a different drive (Windows SharePoint Services 3.0)
Note: this is an article write for Windows SharePoint Services, but also apply to Windows Server Update Services.
For more information please refer to following MS articles:How to Move WSUS Content and Database Files to a Different Volume
