  • Hi,
       

    You can consider WSUS cleanup by running Powershell scripts on the WSUS server: "WSUS Cleanup".
    If the WSUS console still cannot connect to the WSUS server after the cleanup is completed, it is likely that a database problem caused by improper maintenance may occur. Consider the following SQL script to rebuild the database index: "Re-index the WSUS Database".
       

    Reply back with the results would be happy to help.
