We are in the process of deploying a WSUS infastructure and want to configure the split replica option for downstream WSUS servers.  This allows WSUS to report status to the "upstream" WSUS server, but obtain approved updates directly from Microsoft Update (not over the WAN link).  While the technet article explains thai it can be done, I can't seem to locate the configuration for this.

Any suggestions?

I believe this is the setup you need:

On the upstream server, go to Options -> Reporting Rollup and verify the radio button for "Roll up status from replica downstream servers" is ticked

On the downstream server(s) first go to Options -> Update Source and Proxy Server and tick the radio button for "Synchronize from another Windows Server Update Services server" and fill out the necessary info. Also ticking the box for "This server is a replica of the upstream server"

Next, on the downstream server(s) go to Options -> Update Files and Languages make sure the top radio button is ticked (Store update files locally on this server), then tick the box for "Download files from Microsoft Update; do not download from upstream server"

Hope that helps!
