I am trying to configure sus sp1 and gpo to keep domain clients up to date.  It appears, through running gpresult on my client, that the computer settings in my gpo are not be propagated to the client and the gpo's user settings are.  The user setting section in the gpo disables access to microsofts windows updates site. I can enable/disable this switch and it is reliably reflected at the client.  How ever the computer setting of my gpo which to my understanding is supposed to send sus registry settings to the client is not doing so.  I have tried searching the registry for the wuserver key after logging in,  I can't find it or other necessary sus keys.

I trust you've rebooted the client(s).  What SP are the clients at?  Are you using the correct administrative template for setting up SUS via Group Policies?

The clients are win2k sp4.  I have rebooted them several times during testing.  I am using the current adminstrative template, though I did try your linked adm and ended up with the same result.  It still is not passing the gpo computer settings or at least that is what appears to be happening.

If you run GPResult on the client, what happens?  You may have to download it from Microsoft - see http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/existing/gpresult-o.asp

My gpo is called SusUpdates you can see that is is applying the user settings but not the computer settings.  Am I interpeting this correctly?
