Windows 2008 servers cannot download update from internal WSUS.

Our windows 2008 servers are having trouble in downloading approved updates from our WSUS server.  The windows servers already have proper GPO that points to the WSUS.

There are no proxy in between the wsus and the windows servers.  Firewall is already disabled on the windows server.  

Our Windows 2003 servers have the same gpo and they are just fine.  

I have attached a portion of the server windowsupdate.log.  Please comment if you know what might wrong/missing.  

Many thanks.

it is already automatic.  In fact, we have a lot of servers.  Do we have to RDP into each one and check this setting?

It says that the issue can happen due to incorrect FQDN of WSUS server. Please check if the steps mentioned in it are useful
