When you make a change in the Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) 2.0 console, and then you try to open the Update Services node in the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server Administrator console, you may receive a message that resembles the following:
Windows Small Business Server (Windows SBS) Update Services is not running because it automatically turns off if you customize Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
For a list of specific settings that cause Windows SBS Software Update Services to turn off, see the Microsoft Web site
(http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/sbs/techinfo/productdoc/alpha.mspx). Even if WSUS is managing updates for your network, the accuracy of the status in the Windows SBS monitoring report or on the Update Services home page cannot be guaranteed. To use Windows SBS Update Services, reverse the changes that you have made to WSUS or reinstall Windows SBS 2003 R2.
