Rebuilding WID Database for WSUS in Windows Server 2012
If you're using Windows Internal Database (WID) for WSUS in WS2012 and you think you've screwed the configuration, you can force the WSUS to rebuild its contents and database.
Remove WSUS and WID roles from server manager. Reboot server.
Go to C:\Windows\WID\Data
Move both "SUSDB.mdf" and "SUSDB_log.ldf" to another temp folder
Re-install WSUS server role again
