(AccountDomainSid and PingID weren't listed) SusClientIDValidation is new to WSUS v3.

After DS restore WSUS, SQL Reporting Services and SSEE failed to start.

For SSEE first extract ssee_10.msi from WSUSSetup*.msi\wYukon and then run the following command:

msiexec /i ssee_10.msi CALLERID=OCSetup.exe REINSTALL=ALL RINSTALLMODE=omus /qn REBOOT=ReallySupress /l*v c:\ssee_repair.log

Update Services (WSUS) wouldn't reinstall complaining about a lack of .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 2.0 wouldn't reinstall due to "... incompatible with a previously installed one" (ie NET2.0 SP1).  Solution is to change/repair from add/remove programs and reboot.

Reporting services is fixed by this, too.

Finally, for any EVENT IDs 1309s to run %WINDOWS%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\V2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Can't install Service Pack (or some/all other updates) directly, from Windows Update or by WSUS.  See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;822798 for solutions.

This worked for me:

create batch file (catroot2.cmd)

net stop cryptsvc
ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2
net start cryptsvc
cd %systemroot%\system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}
del /Q tmp*.cat

Then delete all tmp*.cat files from %systemroot%\system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE} (or add to batch file, as above)

This can be updated automatically (by Microsoft Update, WSUS, etc) by adding the following registry key:

DWORD: ContentFilterState
Value: 1

Restart the SMTP service after.
