I have an existing WSUS infrastructure that provides clients with all of their Windows Updates.  I am working on a new install of System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3 that will replace the existing WSUS servers.  How can I migrate my existing update approvals from the old infrastructure into SCCM?

You should be able to do that with the WSUSutil.exe Export/Import Command

I tried that and it completed successfully without errors, but no approvals showed up in SCCM or WSUS.

I'm not sure I understand...so I still have to go into SCCM and re-select all the updates I want to approve?

as i know yes. The export/import procedure just defines the update metadata which is handled by the sccm server
