How to setup automatic definition and security updates for Forefront Client Security through SCCM 2007 R2 and WSUS integration?

I've looked as far as I could on the web for information on how to setup automatic pushing and installation on definition and security updates for Forefront Client Security through the SCCM 2007 R2/WSUS integration model. I did find this link:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd185652.aspx

The clients I have (two, one is an XP pro SP3 machine, the other Windos 7 enterprise) will receive definition updates if configured through the SCCM console as a package, but they don't seem to update as the article above explains.

I am wondering what exactly what the best method is to auto aprrove and auto-push updates through SCCM 2007 and FCS. Should I see the SCCM software update icon AND the classic Yellow shield on the same computer? I have tried to perform a wuauclt.exe /detectnow to no avail.

In the registry for the XP and the Windows 7 machine the Windows Update registry keys for the WUServer and the WUStatusServer are both https://serverFQDN:8531. Also the clients show up in the WSUS console as reporting.

As per the article specified by you, you dont need to create a package in SCCM. The way you need to integrate this is by selecting the product "Forefront Client Security" in the products section in the 'Software Update Point Component' Properties. Then add an rule to auto approve all updates of type 'Definition'.

The article you have is the right one and should work. You dont need to run a wuauclt /detectnow.
You can setup a schedule in SCCM for the Software Update Scan Or Run the 'Software Update Scan Cycle' from the Configuration Manager client on the machine.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks.
