I had to reinstall WSUS, so I removed WSUS and reinstalled it, then WID service could not start, so I removed WSUS again and deleted "WID" service.
Now when I re-install WSUS it says WID is installed, but WID service is missing from services.msc
I even tried installing it through powershell command
Install-WindowsFeature Windows-Internal-Database and it shows success but if I refresh services.msc it is still missing.
I followed the following procedure to uninstall:
- Remove WSUS role followed by IIS role
- Remove Windows Internal Database from Roles/Features
- Rename WID folder from "C:\Windows\WID" which contains "SUSDB.mdf"
- install WSUS with IIS with all supportive features including WID.
