wsus updates

hello all,

We have getting Microsoft office updates form our WSUS on client machines. But we are not getting OS updates.
Is there anything we are missing on server side or on client side?

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.

By OS updates do you mean upgrades ?? What version of WSUS are you running ? What updates are you approving ?
Check your product selection in the options of the configuration to make sure the OS updates are included in what your configuration for WSus is.

Try running wuauclt /detectnow from a run command on the client computers to force detection.

Before we proceed to finding the issue, could you run the Server Cleanup Wizard in order to clean out unused or superseded updates? You will have to decide if you want to check all the boxes depending on your environment.

Edit: If you click on your server name in WSUS and then look under Download Status does it say 0 ?
