http://www.winserverkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/wsus/1463/How-verify-clients-connect-to-WSUS-after-setup-Group-Policy

The place to determine whether your clients are responding properly, or not,
is the %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log.

However, if the client has not yet appeared in the WSUS console, then the
most likely cause is that the clients have not successfully selfupdated.
This condition will occur if any of the following conditions exists:
    (1) The operating system is Windows XP RTM or earlier and the computer
has /never/ been updated from Windows Update.
    (2) The operating system is Windows XP SP1 or later, or the system has
been previously updated from Windows Update, and
            (a) the Group Policy has not been properly configured or applied
            (b) the permissions to the virtual server or virtual directory
of the WSUS server are incorrect
            (c) the permissions to the relevant folders of the filesystem of
the WSUS server are incorrect
            (d) the Automatic Updates service on the client is not Started
and/or configured to use the Local System account for Log On.

To verify that the group policy has been properly applied,
    inspect the registry values at
           HKLM\Software\Policies\Windows\WindowsUpdate
    and HKLM\Software\Policies\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
or run RSOP.MSC on the client to inspect the effective policies applied.

To verify the IIS and NTFS permissions on the WSUS server,
check http://wsusinfo.onsitechsolutions.com/articles/016.htm
and compare to your own server's configuration.

To verify other aspects of your client-side configuration, download and run
the Client Diagnostics tool from:

HI

yes the wsus console does not show any clients listed. Can i not just add all the computers to the console and like push the updates onto them.
 
Do i check the windows update log file on every workstation or the wsus server//

thanks for your help, but this is getting way more confusing

the whole wsus update stuff was setup by someone else on this clients network.

Hi

thanks for your help, this is what i did as per your posts, but now I am totally lost .

Checked the windows update log on the server and it seems the updates are running every day. Cuz i see entries in for today date itself.

I ran client diag tool on a worsktation and it came with "passs" for all wsus related actions.

I checked the group policies that have been applied to a client workstation and it looks like it has a bunch of group policies in place that related to windows update.

also checked the registry values on the workstation and tehy look good as well..

So now , how do i proceed??

I have one last question, if the clients that are showing up in wsus are 98 percent etc, then that means they will be eventually be updated or they got stuck at that update level..

Could you please answer it. Please and thanks
