WSUS and approve updates

    Question

  • Hi all,

    i have installed a new 2012 and wsus in my domain. I have a one OU with one test client (W7) within this OU. Now Im trying to understand to work with WSUS.

    After some updates i have installed on my client the client says windows is uptodate now. But if i take look in my wsus I see lot of update for W7 for example KB2345886 in the critical Updates with "not approved" in the Approved status bar.

    I have enabled an "Automatic Approvals" with this options: 

    When an updates is in a spicif classification: Critical,Difinition, Security Updates and just Updates

    When an updates is in a spicific product: all client OS's

    and "Approve the Updates for "Clients". Within the clients group i have my test client.

    Not sure why this update is not approved automaticly

    Any ideas?

    thanks to all

  • Look at the WindowsUpdate.log (in the Windows folder) and see what it says about the updates.

    Yes, but only for new updates. Not for existing Updates.
