I jsut installed WSUS on a Server 2003 server. I added the WUAU template into GPOE and enabled Configure Windows Update and set the Specify Microsoft Update service location to my WSUS server. Then on a client computer ran gpupdate /force followed by wuauclt.exe /detectnow in a command prompt.
On this same client, I then went to Start > All Program > Microsoft Update. There was only one thing on my computer that needed updating (Genuine Advantage Tool) which I did update. But the URL for the update was a microsoft.com URL. On the WSUS admin page, though, my computer shows under the list of computers. How do I know that this is really working? And will the Configure Automatic Updates option in GPOE override the client comptuers that may have different setttings? I set this option at Auto download and schedule the install for Every Tuesday at 3am. Will the 40 workstations on my network go to this one server at that time every week all at the same time looking for updates?
