Only the clients with the SUS Group Policy or those that are manually configured to use SUS will get the updates.

How did you instruct your clients to use the SUS server?

oh, i do need to add... setup all of your servers to report back to one via the GPO's you likely used.  this way you can use one log file to monitor the enterprise.

well, my two cents says there is no other means of reporting this, as I've implemented this solution for several companies and re vied the options surrounding it very thoroughly.  he could use a commercial product such as GFI's languard or Shavlik Pro's patch management, which have reporting, but as far as SUS goes, he's got his answer.
