    Force WSUS Client to Poll WSUS Server

    Is there a way after an update is approved to force the WSUS client to
    checkin and pull down the updates on demand instead of waiting for the
    specified time interval?

    Thanks

    Run wuauclt.exe /detectnow from a command prompt on the client.

    That command does not seem to do much of anything?

    Yes, using a script. I've written a very simple one, there are others available
    on the web which are more flexible.

    Mine is here:

    Great Redmondmag Article reviewing WSUS.
    Look for the section "Big Red Button" which contains a WSUS UPdate Now vbs
    script.
    http://redmondmag.com/features/artic...torialsid=1775

    When I run the script I do a Netstat and look for the connection to my WSUS
    server and watch taskmanager CPU column. You can tell when updates are being
    pulled and the MSIexe starts running when the updates are being installed.

    Have you tried using

    bitsadmin /monitor /allusers

    instead?
