I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Check that the updates needed are approved.

I approve them and the client starts to download and then it looks like it downloads and I get a message saying can't install. Updates where not installed

Post the windowsupdate.log from a failed client

Here is the log I can see the two that failed at the end of the log but I am not sure why WindowsUpdate.log

Does it look like it is a rights thing
boogieman01Author Commented:
I added those rights and it still will not install the updates
boogieman01Author Commented:
The Client installed 100 % but the server is still not installing
DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
It is definitely a rights issue, is the error the same in the windowsupdate.log on server?
boogieman01Author Commented:
Here is the bottom of the log file there is an error but I am not sure what it means

The guy said on that page that he fixed it but did not say how.

My clients connect but my server does not the local group policy has the proper rights and the domain all systems are on a domain. The WSUS server cannot update from itself so it can not get its own updates and if I point it to the other wsus upstream it can't get updates

here is the message

Do you have the policy "allow non administrators to receive update notifications" enabled?
boogieman01Author Commented:
I will have to check that I did change the auto update server from the network service to the local system account and that worked for the Wsus to recieve updates but I need to make sure everything else is working
boogieman01Author Commented:
Does anyone know anything about changing the Autoupdate service to local system account?
boogieman01Author Commented:
I think I found the answer with one of the comments since it might have to so with the service account and all the help was helpful to track down
