Backup and restore issues
Applies To: Windows Server Update Services
If you cannot access WSUS data after restoring the database, check the WSUS server name and user permissions for the database
If you restore a WSUS database but cannot access the restored from the WSUS console check for the following:
If you have changed the WSUS server name since the backup, you must add the corresponding users to the database to enable the WSUS console to access the data.
If you restore the backup to a WSUS server other than the one from which you backed up the database, you will have the same result and must also add the corresponding users.
In either case, the users need to be granted permissions for public and Web service.
