    What is the RTM build? Just want to check.. My current build is: Build

    Also noted the WMSDE SQL icon has been removed from the systray... or maybe
    it will come back upon reboot. But it appeared to be non-functional anyway.

    I did the upgrade and script... showing the same build as you. I think
    that's the latest.

  3. Yep -- you are running the RTM build. And the icon you refer to is probably
    the SQL Service Manager application. I have it on two of my WSUS machines
    (one upgraded from RC, the other a fresh load). Check your startup group
    for an app called Service Manager. It is possible that you logged on with a
    different user and the icon wasn't in All Users (but instead in a
    user-specific profile). Either way it shouldn't be too difficult to get it
    back. The path to the shortcut should read:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn\sqlmangr.exe" /n

    And as for its apparent lack of functionality -- open the utility and
    populate the server field with "your_server_name\WSUS" and you should get
    better results.

  4. That's correct.

    SQLMANAGER.EXE: Is there a way to have it launch the server\WSUS everytime?
    the command line options /n /c /s {server}\WSUS but that did not work.

  6. Good question -- I'm not much of a SQL guy. Wonder if anyone else will
    stumble on this thread and offer an answer (hint, hint).

  7. I didn't have any problems with the SQLManager on my WSUS RC server latching
    onto the <server>\WSUS instance and continuing to monitor it, but that's the
    only instance running.

    On network-accessed MSDE instances, I found it helped to add the MSDE
    instance via the Client Network Utility as an alias, which then placed it in
    the dropdown menu of SQLManager.

    If your WSUS server has multiple instances -- or a default instance, which
    would also get the attention of SQLManager by default -- it might help to
    create an alias in the CNU.

    Note also, from SQLManager's perspective, it's only monitoring the WSUS
    instance. The database does start up automatically at system startup (or
    should definitely be configured to do so, by setting MSSQL$WSUS to

    My WSUS service is the ONLY and DEFAULT instance running but when I log in,
    it is NOT being monitored.

  9. With MSDE, you will not get the SQLManager by default. As Lawrence stated,
    try setting up an alias via the Client Network Utility, which will then
    populate the SQLManager with the WSUS instance. Try that out and reply
    back - I'm going to also try the idea myself to see if it fires up and is in
    the tray.

    OK, I'm a dummy here, please be more step by step on the ALIAS
    recommendation. I found the cliconfg.exe (Client Network Utility) and tried
    setting up a named pipe alias for WSUS -> {server}\WSUS.... Which may not be
    correct since it didn't work.
