Most of computers are WXP and get the updates from our internal WSUS.
I have windows 2000 professional computer that I need it to pull the updates from our WSUS also, it is in the same OU as the WXP and has the same GPO applied as the other WXP.
But when I logged into W2000 pro,and looked into services console, I could n't find the Automatic Update service.This W2000 pro doesn't showup on WSUS yet. and it can't show up if it doesn't have the Automatic Update service running in it.
So, how can I get the Automatic Update service showing up in W2000 pro?

    I would check the WSUS docs on how to do this.
    There may be a client install required.

    I hope this helps !
