Windows 2k3 R2 server SP2 server running WSUS 3.0 sp2.
WSUS was working fine for almost a year. Unfortunately the update service on the server stopped auto starting about two months ago and required a manual restart. Now it will not start at all.
I get the following error: Event Type: Error Event Source: Service Control Manager Event Category: None Event ID: 7009 Date: 23/02/2011 Time: 01:00:23 PM User: N/A Computer: ********** (Server Name) Description: Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the Update Services service to connect.

Has anyone got an answer?
