I am running SBS 2003. I upgraded WSUS to 3.0 a few weeks ago. I thought it was configured correctly but now I am not sure. I want to have client updates automatically approved and downloaded and then installd at a scheduled time. I want to manually approved and download server updates.
I have configured the clients usong Group Policy. I attached a screen shot of the GP settings.
When I checked updates today, the various computers needed between 14 - 18 updates according to the WSUS reports. I looked at the Update log on one of the cllient computers and it is successfully connecting to the server and checking for updates. I am not sure why the updates are not being approved and downloaded to the computers.
I did make a change in the Group Policy that may affect this. I created two Group Policy objects: WSUS Clients and WSUS Servers. I added the SBS clients and servers to the respective Group Policy Objetcs. I am not using the defualt SBS Group Policy Objects: "Small Business Server Update Services Server Computers Policy". By not using the SBS GP objects, have I prevented the WSUS updates from occurring as designed?
