Microsoft WSUS Server/ Group Policy

We are having a hard time configuring Group Policy to allow NON Administrator users to receive Windows updates.  

We have allowed non-administrators to receive update notifications and have selected Auto download and schedule the install.  

Administrator users received the notification but never the non-administrator users.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In Group Policy Object Editor, expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, and then click Windows Update.

There is an option for Allow "Non-administrators to Receive Update Notifications" make sure that is enabled

You don't write how you configured it. If we change that setting, we need to restart the windows update service at the client side or it won't change it's behavior.

Ensure that policy is applied to computer OU else it will not work.You also need to reboot the client computer for setting to take effect if the policy is applied correctly.see this for more details:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd939933(WS.10).aspx

Run rsop.msc and check that policy is applied correctly on client computer.
