Hi,

I have a SBS 2k3 setup and I am trying to install the WSUS3.0. after installing the WSUS the application runs but I can't see the list of computers and when I ran the WSUS diagnostic tool I got "au does not have policy set"

Any advice?

You need to configure the Windows Update Agent from group policy.

Location of the configuration in the GPEDIT.msc:
Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update

Configure at lease these options:
"Specify intranet Microsoft update service location"
"Configure Automatic Updates"

As I wrote above you have to configure GPO for the computer objects.
To make it easy configure it on "Default Domain Policy", and make sure that other GPOs are not overriding it, then using GPEDIT.MSC (Group policy Editor) or from GPMC.MSC (Group Policy Management console) navigate to  "Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update" and configure at least these options:
      "Specify intranet Microsoft update service location"
      "Configure Automatic Updates"

It's not that simple.  The fact that you are even asking the question leads me to believe that you didn't follow the links in the document I suggested above.  Please be sure that you have fully followed the server configuration instructions found here:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708612.aspx

ok now after creating a policy and linking it to the group Domain Computers. I am able to see the server only when searching for computers. how to see the other computers as well? do I need to restart the other PC so the policy gets applied and I might see the computers on WSUS?

You should read the documentation, really.
You have to choose a "Any" filter in the status pane. and the click refresh.
