Hope everyone's had an enjoyable xmas:).

I installed WSUS last night on my server 2003 machine, by following the instructions on this link .

However, when I started it up none of the machines were seen and even though the synchronisations were successful I could see no updates at all of the 2400 which it claimed there were. So that was weird.

I tried all of the solutions on the internet, but nothing worked. I did select the database as SQL rather than Windows Internal one. I've uninstalled WSUS and am planning to reinstall. Is it worth me using the Windows Internal one this time? Are there advantages to using the SQL 2005 database instead?
