what happens when you update the SBS 2008 catalog? That doesn't mean that my server is going to automatically INSTALL the updates.. correct? I have it set to do not approve updates.

but there were no updates in the update console. at the time.

This is the first time I'm doing this.

I guess what I am asking is this how I find out what updates are available...

I refreshed the View for the 4 categories of updates ,

Updates with Microsoft License Terms that are pending approval.
No Updates with license terms are available for deployment


Updates with Errors
There were no errors deploying the updates

Optional Updates
No optional updates are available for deployment

Updates in Progress
No updates are in progress.


So does this simply mean there ARE NO UPDATES to be had? or am I going about this wrong?

I have it set to do not approve updates Does this mean that you have set it to 'decline' updates?

Declining updates should only be done on a case by case basis.

just uncheck the default approval rule. you should see updates awaiting approval.
updating the catalog lets wsus know about new categories that you can add/remove for wsus to query for

The thing is, I am taking over for someone else that was doing this.. I am remote and they did it onsite...

the server is set to do not approve any updates automatically.

and the clients are set to do their updates at 3am  but none of the computers are in an update group. so everything is checked manually so they don't get a bad update in the batch.

I just don't want to screw it up because I'll be out of a job.
