    Hello,

    I'm getting this error message when trying to update WSUS 3 to WSUS 3 SP1.
    The App log in Event Viewer also shows an access denied error.

    The sever is running Windows 2003 Server SP1 and WSUS 3 is currently
    installed on D: and is running fine.

    I have done a search and have verified that there isn't a SUSDB.bak or WSUS
    ..bak file that needs to be deleted.

    Regarding the App log access denied error, I have also verified the account
    I'm using has full rights to the WSUS.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks!

    Try giving NETWORK SERVICE full control permission to the WSUS dir. I got
    this same error on a couple of servers when upgrading to WSUS 3.0 SP1 and
    granting that permission allowed the upgrade to complete successfully.
