How to Let WSUS to download again the failed update?

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Dear Sir,

I have noticed that Windows XP SP3 is not installed automatically through WSUS on my XP machines.
I checked my WSUS server and I found out the following error:

"The files for this update failed to download. The update can be approved but will not be available to computers until the download is complete. Click Retry Download to start the download again".

How can I solve this issue for that particular update "XP SP3"?
How can I solve in the future If I have a similar error for a different update?

Thank You,
