I have a project to setup a WSUS server. For setup, I have used notes and suggestions from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4_UoxXJ9Cg
. This projects includes:
1. 64-bit Windows 2008 R2 Standard Server Sp1.
2. 2 Test Windows 7 professional Computers.
a. 1 PC is a 64-bit PC.
b. 1 PC is a 32-bit PC.
This project was actually already started by another administrator that has since left the company; but, the finishing touches were never applied.
As I was realizing how everything was already installed/configured everthing seemed to be in place. I did make some minor changes in the GPO, for client side targeting. I moved the clients (in Active Directory) to the 'WSUS Test' OU and then linked the WSUS GPO to the respected OU.
The designated Clients show up in the WSUS computer groups; but, I cannot get the approved updates to get installed.
The version of the WSUS software on our WSUS Server is 3.27600.226
I can see the respected clients show up in the WSUS Computer groups; but, they do not give back any status. Please see the picture below:
I can tell on the client that the Windows Update Settings are controlled by the WSUS Server; but, I cannot get the approved updates to actually install on the selected computers.
I thought about un-linking the GPO and un-installing the WSUS software from the Server so I can start from scratch. You now how it is a little confusing when you are working with another person's project. But, I honestly feel that if I do that, the problem will not go away.
I fear that the problem is tied to the fact that I cannot get a status update on the WSUS clients, from the WSUS Server. Very weird, I can see the clients, the clients are linked to the WSUS Server; but, I cannnot get the Approved updates to become installed on the WSUS client PC's.
My question is, how can I get the Approved updates to be insatlled on the WSUS clients?
