Having done a dozen SBS 2003 installs, I know my way around it expertly, but I'm still feeling my way around SBS 2008. I've done only one install - the one in question here - and it was a migration to new hardware using an answer file which actually went very smoothly.
The only problem is that even though I've approved dozens of updates, none of the client machines (Vista, WS 2008) are getting notified of the approved updates' availability. Moreover, not even the SBS machine is getting prompted to install updates.
I've confirmed that SBS and the client machines are looking to WSUS (3.0 SP1) for updates by inspecting the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWAR
r and WUStatusServer. Both key's value is http://SBS2008:8530
So, umm....what's going on?
