Hi,

Have upgraded our parent server to WSUS 3.0 sp2 and am using Group Policy linked throught an Active Directory container to update client pc's

My problem is that the Group Policy's are correct and were working before we upgraded client pc's to Windows 7 platform.  No PC"s have been updated since the upgrade in operating systems.  Now the client pc's will now show up on the WSUS server, I think the problem maybe with the WSUS administrative template on the computer that is being used to administer Group Policy.  That pc is running Windows Server 2003, and the WUAU.adm policy template is loaded, but I don't think it is the latest one, and perhaps causing the issue on why the pc's are now showing up. See below from Microsoft.  How can I find the latest wuau policy template to replace and see if it will work for pc's running Windows 7?

Before you can set any Group Policy options for WSUS, you must ensure that the latest administrative template has been loaded on the computer used to administer Group Policy. The administrative template with WSUS settings is named wuau.adm. Although there are additional Group Policy settings related to the Windows Update Web site, all the new Group Policy settings for WSUS are contained within the wuau.adm file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
