Abstract:

Reports are an important part of managing WSUS. You can keep track of nearly every aspect of the WSUS network by means of reports. The most important kinds of reports are:

    * Summary compliance reports (the number of computers that need to install updates and the number of updates missing from computers).You can generate these reports from the root node of the WSUS administration console.
    * Individual computer reports. You can generate these reports by right-clicking the computer in the Details pane.
    * Individual update reports. You can generate these reports by right-clicking the update in the Details pane.
    * Downstream server summary compliance reports. You can generate these reports by right-clicking the server in the Details pane.
    * Synchronization reports. You can generate these reports by right-clicking the synchronization in the Details pane.

Thanks for the info it really helped, the only think that im not sure of is about the GPO. I created a Groupe Policy so that all computer look at the WSUS server for updates but my question is how do I know it works. When I click on the windows updates icon the URL goes to update.microsoft.com ???

Q. How do I ensure that the client settings are fully populated through the GPO?
A. Very simple, do a simple Reg query:
reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /s

The windows updates icon will always direct to update.microsoft.com regardless of whether wsus is used or not. You can disable this with group policy.
