How To restart WSUS Service

A few people have asked me where they can find the WSUS service in the Windows Server Services list in order to restart it.

Note: I published a new article on how to restart the WSUS Service  using PoweShell.

The simple and best way to restart the WSUS service on a Windows server 2003 or 2008 is to open the cmd command line and  type the following command.

net stop WSUSService


net start WSUSService
