    after removing Wsus getting Error ID421 every 15 mins

    Hi Guys

    I decided to move wsus a while ago onto another server, and since then we've been getting our application log spammed with errors:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Windows Server Update Services
    Event Category: Update Services Service
    Event ID: 421
    Date: 16/03/2010
    Time: 08:48:01
    User: N/A
    Computer: GCS-SRV-003
    Description:
    Connection to database failed. Reason=SQL Server does not exist or access denied.. Connection string: Net=dbnmpntw;Data Source=\\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query;;I nitial Catalog=SUSDB;Connection Timeout=60;Application Name=WSUS SQL Connection;Trusted_Connection=Yes;Pooling='true'; Max Pool Size = 100

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    Now I've removed wsus from this server, even tried removing the old sql database to shut it up, I've been trawling the web on and off for a while trying to find an answer to it when we get some quite time, but alas, I can't find anything that has solved it yet. So short of reinstalling the server, which as far as I can see now is the only way to get rid of this, how can I clear this error? its running on server 2003 r2.

    You might check for any WSUS services if they are still running.
    I also found something that R2 will look for this service no matter what.

    Not to sound a dull end, I had seen that, just didn't really know what to make of it, what does susanne mean by "You now need to remove the R2 piece. As it hooks into WSUS."

    I'd need to reinstall R2?
