SUS Group Policy Help???

Guest

I am trying to implement a group policy for SUS and am running into problems. All of my clients are running Windows XP Pro SP 1. My plan was to implement a GP based on the machines (computers) rather then the users.

I created a new OU called SUS Group Policy Test. I have placed one test workstation and one test user in this OU. I created a new GP called SUS Group Policy and linked it to the new OU. In the security filtering section of the new GP I added the one test workstation I am using.

I have approved 4 SUS updates that this workstation needs. I can see that the GP is being applied but the updates are not installed.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong? Why are the updates not being installed?

I ran gpresult on the workstation and this is what it shows:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\test>gpresult

Sounds like the GPO is working fine and you need to troubleshoot on the SUS
server and workstation. There is a windows update.log file on the
workstation as well as event logs, and also IIS logs on the server to check.
Have you given it enough time? Usually when first implemented, SUS takes a
day or two before you start seeing activity on the workstation.
