Please excuse my ignorance on this but I am still new to WSUS server and am trying to find my feet!
I have WSUS 3.0 installed on an SBS 2003 server, clients are connecting in and displaying status. This is all great except they don't appear to actually be installing any updates. The WSUS console shows the computers require updates and under the 'installed/not applicable' status indicator show 99%.
Group policy settings are as follows;
Configure Automatic Updates Enabled
Configure automatic updating: 4 - Auto download and schedule the install
The following settings are only required
and applicable if 4 is selected.
Scheduled install day: 0 - Every day
Scheduled install time: 10:00
Specify intranet Microsoft update service location Enabled
Set the intranet update service for detecting updates: http://server1:8530
Set the intranet statistics server: http://server1:8530
I have checked the log files at c:\windows\windowsupdate.l
og and can find no errors, the wau contacts the server and the server reports no updates required as below;
'* Found 0 updates and 32 categories in search; evaluated appl. rules of 461 out of 677 deployed entities'
Yet the console shows many updates are required!
This is starting to drive me nuts, if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated!
