I had to reinstall WSUS again in a production environment where ConfigMgr 2012 is also installed. I proceeded as follows: I uninstalled WSUS without the log files, database and updates. I reinstalled WSUS with KB2720211 and KB2734608 updates. Then I rebooted the server and started synchronizing software updates. But now I am not able to connect to the WSUS database. Instead an error message saying that the existing database is not compatible with the windows server updates was displayed. Where have I gone wrong? What could be causing the issue? Please help. I am waiting for your valuable suggestions on this issue. Thank you.
The existing database is not compatible with this version of
Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2.

Reinstalling WSUS in production environment where ConfigMgr 2012 is also present
When you reinstall Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 on your server, make sure the following prerequisites are already present on the computer before the installation:
Internet Information Services 6.0 and up
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and up
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 [Express or Standard], Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Service Pack 2, or Windows Internal Database
Microsoft Management Console 3.0
Microsoft Report Viewer Redistributable 2008
If you don’t have Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Service Pack 2 installed on the server, Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 Setup Wizard will install Windows Internal Database instead. When installing, remember that you cannot install the server component on a Windows client operating system.
If you are running Windows Server 2008 R2, it requires Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 2. You cannot install Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 1 on Windows Server 2008 R2.
