WSUS configuration instructions

Anyone have a link or set of instructions for configuring WSUS SP2 on a Windows 2008 server?  The set of instructions I downloaded from MS seem to pertain more to 2003, I'm getting confused on some of these instructions and Windows 2008.

Here's a good guide, the only differences you should encounter are the look of configuring GP

WSUS 3.0 SP2 is Windows 2008 R2 compliant, WSUS 3.0 SP1 is Windows 2008 compliant and WSUS 2.0 is Windows 2003 compliant.

I add a couple more links to those indicated by dstewartjr:

That is where my confusion is, with the look of 2008 and configuring the group policies.  I'm getting lost in translation, are there any instructions tailored specifically to 2008?

All the settings are the same, both the links I provided are very thorough including image captures

As I was going thru the settings, I see in the section Web Site preference that the default site is recommended.  If I type in the default site http://oursitename I get the IIS7 welcome page.  Is that correct?

WSUS 3.0 does not use the browser for administration, you need to use the MMC.

I went in under options -> automatic approvals and set the default automatic approval rule to approve for all computers.  I go in under Computers -> All Computers and every single computer in there has a yellow ! next to it and says that it hasn't reported yet.

Not understanding why it failed, as I am an admin on my Windows 7 PC and a Domain Admin.

I'll take a look, but will this work with Windows 2008 server and WSUS 3.0?  One of the links looks like it was for Win2k3, another seems to be WSUS 1.0.

I guess neither would apply to 2008,  Those are what I had on those errors. Continue to verify your server settings.

My comment in your other WSUS(GPO)  thread should also resolve this issue.
