Connection string for WSUS Server Access–Now with WID / Server 2013

Filed under: SQL, WSUS — Tags: , , , — solutionsthroughit @ 11:05

(Quick and dirty post – may clean this up later)

To connect to the WSUS database on Windows Servers, enter \\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query in to the management application (Management Studio) and you will be able to configure memory/other options as required.

Update: To connect to a WID (Windows Internal Database) you can enter \\.\pipe\MICROSOFT##WID\tsql\query into the SQL Management Studio, to configure and manage the WSUS database on server 2013.
