      I had the same problem on at least one server. There are very specific instructions in the readme file that comes with WSUS or on Microsoft’s web site that will walk you through a few commands you must enter in to make WSUS find the MSDE instance. I can’t remember the exact steps off the top of my head.

      i had the same problem.

      – double click on the database icon in your tray.
      – put in your \\servername\wsus
      – make sure all services are started
