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.

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

and

net start WSUSService
