Error while re-installing WSUS on Windows 2008

If you ever had to re-install the WSUS on Windows 2008 R2 then chances are there that you would get this error:

The reason of this error is that this server is still pointing to itself as the update server..sounds funny.



To fix it you need to delete this key HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate from registry and restart the Windows Update Service.  It’s strongly recommended that you backup your registry settings before making any modifications.
