Hi all
We have a clients Server (sbs2003 - SP1) with WSUS installed. All the computers are getting updates apart fron the server. We have approved the updates as normal.
In WSUS it is saying that the server han't reported back for a number of days.
This is what i can find in the server WindowsUpdate.log

I'd suggest that you install this update:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954960

While it describes an issue with Office 2003 SP1, and you shouldn't have Office installed on your SBS, Office SP1 actually does get administratively installed on an SBS in order to be pushed out to client machines with Outlook. So it does apply to SBS installations.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by " i don't have any updates to do with office 2003 SP1 to install".  Are you saying that you've installed the WSUS patch described in KB 954960?
