asked on

windows 7 wsus client

I found this command

wuauclt /detectnow

which is supposed to request updates from the WSUS server according to the website I found this on. however, i ran it and I know there are updates, but nothing happened on the client.
On other clients, when the updates are pushed out from the server,  the updates appear in the right hand corner by the time. I haven't run this command on other clients, so for the other clients, the updates showed up from the server without running the update thing.  But for the client I ran this command on, nothing appeared there, and I waited a good 1/2 hour. Is there any other way to request updates?
Also, the client I ran this on is on the domain, and signed in, if that helps.
