I get the concept of what WSUS 3.0, but I would imagine if it works correctly that you should be able to view updates?  Also I get a HTTP 404 error file or directory not found?  Tried to adjust settings in IIS to allow certain scripts example .ASP, but no luck.  Please help

There is no web console in WSUS 3.0.

You cannot view the updates via the website - you must use the MSC to look at the server status.

I've tried going to (all programs-->administrative tools-->windows software update services 3.0)  I think this is what you mean.

I guess I've figured it out now, but when your in the Windows Software Update Services interface and open the all computers option you should be able to see all the computers your managing?  I see my domain controller server01, but the client machine I have on the domain doesn't show up.  I've configured the default domain group policy for this too and still doesn't show up.  In the group policy editor I input configure automatic updates and specify intranet Microsoft update services.  Any ideas.

If the client PC is XP then it may take  reboots to apply the policy change.

Run a gpupdate /force
Reboot.

When the client is up again, log in.
From a CMD window, run: wuauclt /detectnow
Give it about 15 minutes.
See if the client shows up.

There's no ADM update required.

There is an update for the Client, yes - but you're clients will get them from WSUS.

Are you sure there are updates available?  You set up the server with the updates you want from MS, then sync it - you also need to approve (either manually or automatically) the updates on WSUS before they are downloaded and presented to the client.

Can you post an output of one of the clients WU logs?

well, the biggest problem is that when you select the all computers option in the interface for WSUS 3.0 no clients will appear.  If no clients appear then obviously there won't be any updates to forward.  I tried

ALL THIS DIDN'T SEEM TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  I mean I can try again and hope it works, but unlikely.

You may have made changes to IIS that are messing with the reporting.

Since it doesn't appear you have much there, you can always uninstall it, reboot, then reinstall it to see if something corrupted the first time around.

Normally, after the install all you have to do is set the language, the products to download and the approvals then set the sync time and let it go.

If you set the GPO properly then once updates get downloaded to your server they are made available to the client.  There really isn't much more to it.

You don't have any firewalls between the WSUS server and the client, do you?

IIS must be installed for WSUS to work.

If there's nothing else (no websites) in IIS then select to use the default site when installing WSUS.
