Wus Server Not updateing clients
I have a WUS server running Windows Server 2008. I am trying to apply a gpo to all clients to automatically update from the server. The gpo is on a windows 2003 platform. I have been able to get the clients to download the updates and notify the user to install updates. When I chose the option "4 auto download and install at scheduled time" they do nothing. The client does not even download the updates or register on the WUS server.
The gpo I have applied at the moment had the following enabled and set up - configure automatic updates, specify intranet Microsoft update service location, automatic updates detection frequency, allow non-administrators to receive update notifications.

It sounds to me this is possibly a new setup? Are all the update files downloaded? When you load the WSUS 3.0 console it displays on the startup screen whether any updates are required under 'Download Status'.
This is what settings I use to setup WSUS

Have you also tried the
on the machines to update the windows update proxy. I have to apply this with a script at start up.
Also have a look at Microsoft Windows Server Update Services Tools and Utilities and try the server and client diagnostic tools,

I have tried both with no luck. The Updates are downloaded and have been approved on the WUS server. Does anyone know of any gpo that may block automatic updates?
Any other ideas would be great.

Paste this into Notepad and save as WSUSReset.bat:
Reboot the machine and see if this makes any difference. You're not by chance running an RM network are you as the workstations are deliberately modified so it won't talk to a WSUS server by default. It deletes some vital registry entries.
TITLE Logistix WSUS Reset Authorisation
Echo This batch file will do the following:
Echo 1. Stops the wuauserv service
Echo 2. Deletes the AccountDomainSid registry key (if it exists)
Echo 3. Deletes the PingID registry key (if it exists)
Echo 4. Deletes the SusClientId registry key (if it exists)
Echo 5. Restarts the wuauserv service
Echo 6. Resets the Authorization Cookie
Echo 6. More information on http://msmvps.com/Athif
net stop wuauserv
REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v AccountDomainSid /f
REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v PingID /f
REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientId /f
net start wuauserv
wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

Are you sending out office 2003 sp3 updates??
I had a problem with WSUS 3.0 when I approved sp3. Nothing would download at all. I trawled google and found that if you approve sp1 then decline the update everything starts to work. I did that and then manually did wuauclt /detectnow and all the updates started working like magic.
Turns out that microsoft did something to sp1 and it messed with the updates.
You could try that
