Remote SQL Database for SUSdb RRS feed

  • Question

  • I currently have 4 sus server in seperate domain that are havign a issues.

    I keep gettng connection reset on the GUI of WSUS.

    I noticed that my DB on the remote SQL server range from 20 GB to 40 GB

    The quesiton I have are this.

    Is there a max size for the SUSDB on a remote db ?

       if so what is it the size of it.

       what command do I need to issue to shrink remove the database

       I tired to use the server option in the WSUS GUI but keep getting server node rest.  I even tried to install the Admin console on a different box and still get the node reset.

    if there is no max size to the database any idea what is causing the connection to be reset upon loading?
