I have just installed and configured WSUS 3 and would like some pointers on how best to use it.
Windows Server 2003 SP2
My one test machine picks up date GPO "Update Server" change.
It showed up in Unassigend Computers. I assigned it to a group then changed my mind and unassigned it. Now it doesn't show up at all any more. (Even though total computers shows 1).
Searching for it yields nothing.
The missing machine can still access HTTP://Server/SelfUpdate/iuiDent.cab
I'm also confused by the amount of updates available that are awaiting approval.
21911 updates are in the list.
SQL Server 2005
SQL Server Feature Pack
I.E. 8 Dynamic Installer
Windows Server 2003
Selected Classifications: (Automatically approved)
Only English updates is selected
Also using Local storage with "Download update files to this server only when updates are approved".
Update Services handles computer group membership

This is the resource I used to deploy and configure:
