WSUS - server updates tiself fine, but XP Pro SP2 clients do not

Hello, just installed R2 of SBS2003. Previous version did NOT have the standalone SWUS installed. WSUS has not really worked 'out of the box' at all.

Initially I noticed in the SBS2003 Administrator Report that that the following was happening as per this question I asked;

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Windows_Server_2003/Q_22052112.html which was due to the way my SonicWall Firewall was configured

but the response in the above question seems to have worked in that a) this error no longer crops up and b) the server updates itself fine.

But none of the XP Pro clients don't seem to respond to the presence of scheduled (Office 2003) updates.

Does anyone have any initial ideas abour troubleshooting this?

Thanks ...

How did you upgrade your SBS?  Did you follow this guide:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=29CB973D-41D8-4A5E-9312-90982A0FC164&displaylang=en?

Hi Jeff, yes, followed it by the book, and in terms of the order to install the various components. No errors were reported.

I don't remember if we discussed this in another question of yours... but did you join your workstations to the domain using http://<servername>/connectcomputer?

Hi Jeff, yes did do this ... to all of them

Somewhat bizzarely, updates have just started to flow through over the last few days, EVEN to the pc that WSUS on the server reports as NOT having registered with update services.

But last night saw a 'new error' generated on the server at 21.00 last night (when content download begins) which is;

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Windows Server Update Services
Event Category:      Synchronization
Event ID:      364
Date:            16/11/2006
Time:            21:01:52
User:            N/A
Computer:      SBS2003
Description:
Content file download failed. Reason: The client does not have sufficient access rights to the requested server object.
 Source File: /msdownload/update/v3-19990518/cabpool/outlfltr_583dfb9135336081d49ba307b21e70487b8f2475.cab Destination File: c:\WSUS\WsusContent\75\583DFB9135336081D49BA307B21E70487B8F2475.CAB.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Perhaps this has something to do with a my SonicWall firewall again, and perhaps I need to add a new update site to the list of allowable sites? Or something else?

Re the pc that 'has not registered' with WSUS, perhaps I should ignore it as it seems to get updates from the server, and like all the other pc's, GP stops a local user going to the Microsoft Update site?

Sorry for all the changes!

The "client" in this case is your SERVER which is not getting the download from Windows Update.

Please see:  http://eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=364&eventno=5837&source=Windows%20Server%20Update%20Services&phase=1 for troubleshooting.
