    I have tried multiple times to uninstall WSUS, IIS, WID, Folder structure, remove WSUS administration site, etc... nothing has worked so far. Also getting BPA analyzer warning about SelfHelp folder is not configured properly. Please help!!

    Windows Server 2012 R2, SCCM 2012 R2, WSUS 6.9.6300 ?

  • Has it ever worked correctly?
    Was there some kind of event (crash or server,or, installation of some other software) which led to this?
    Are there other health issue with the server?

    Have you tried dism /online /checkhealth etc ?

  • I did struggle when i tried to update the SCCM version from SP1 to R2. At one point had to recover from a backup. I was thinking of trying the DISM but have not yet.
