Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'. Reason: Failed to open the explicitly specified database 'SUSDB' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Attempting to build a new WSUS server and after rebooting I am receiving the following message and WSUS server stops:

    Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'. Reason: Failed to open the explicitly specified database 'SUSDB'

    I see some past artricles about this issue but I do not have KB3148812 installed and I do have KB3159706 installed. 

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    I was able to get the service started again by following Steps:

    Manual Steps

    1. Open an elevated Command Prompt window, and then run the following command (case sensitive, assume “C” as the system volume):
      "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe" postinstall /servicing
    2. Activate HTTP Activation under .NET Framework 4.5 Features (Via powershell)
      Import-Module ServerManager
      Add-WindowsFeature NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45

      Get-WindowsFeature NET-WCF*

      Display Name Name Install State
      ------------ ---- -------------
      [X] WCF Services NET-WCF-Services45 Installed
      [X] HTTP Activation NET-WCF-HTTP-Activat... Installed
      [ ] Message Queuing (MSMQ) Activation NET-WCF-MSMQ-Activat... Available
      [ ] Named Pipe Activation NET-WCF-Pipe-Activat... Available
      [ ] TCP Activation NET-WCF-TCP-Activati... Available
      [X] TCP Port Sharing NET-WCF-TCP-PortShar... Installed
    3. Restart the WSUS Service
      net stop "WSUS service"
      net start "WSUS service"
