Appendix I: Database Maintenance

In order to keep your WSUS server functioning correctly, you should have a maintenance plan that includes re-indexing the database on a regular basis, preferably at least once a month.

The WsusDBMaintenance script ( allows you to re-index any version of the WSUS database, either SQL Server or Base de données interne Windows.

If you are using Base de données interne Windows, you will need to use the sqlcmd utility. For more information about the sqlcmd utility, see sqlcmd Utility (

To use this script with Base de données interne Windows, you should run the following command:

sqlcmd -S np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query –i <scriptLocation>\WsusDBMaintenance.sql

where <scriptLocation> is the directory where you have copied the WsusDBMaintenance script.
