WSUS client not connecting to the server – 2

Prior to the post stating about WSUS client, there are some additional information for this issue:

WSUS 3.0 won’t work on Windows 2000 or below, it only works on Windows 2003. For lower OS, use WSUS 2.0, which .Net framework is not requried.

WSUS2.0 may require SQL desktop engine, which is a free version of SQL server software developed by Microsoft.

3 items needed for WSUS 2.0

IIS
MSDE
WSUS 2.0 SP1

Some workaround may needed for WSUS clients to reconnect to WSUS server:

Delete Software Distribution folder and WindowsUpdate.log file from %System roor%:\Windows\
