Windows Update Client

After applying the necessary changes to local group policies to direct a client to the intranet SUS server, when running 'Automatic Update' the client system still attempts to contact the MS site and look for updates. I am sure that policy has been applied on the client system as I can administrate the server from the client machine.

What is the trick to changing the client systems so they will not attempt connecting to the MS update site?

If it's still going to MS for the updates, it's not set. The machine is not getting the GPO. You're doing everything right, but something else is preventing it. Is it a single machine? if so, you could set a local policy on that machine. If the GPO finally goes into place, it'll override any changes to the local machine. try gpedit.msc from the start -> run menu.

do you have a GPO applied anywhere in your domain that enables/diables Windows Update?
