    Can't see any computers in WSUS console

    I’m running a Windows Server 2003 Domain and just few hours ago I installed WSUS 3.1. This is the first time ever I came across WSUS, so don’t have enough idea about the same an need some urgent help from you all. After installing the WSUS I linked Group Policy specifically for WSUS to a specific OU in which I dropped some of my clients running with Windows XP. The problem now am facing is though i rebooted those systems, they are not at all showing up in WSUS.

    No matter I search sort them or search them, they are just not showing up. I’m sure the connections is proper because when I try from XP workstations, they are successfully telnet to port 80 on the WSUS server. Somebody please help me to get it fixed. Many thanks.

    Before I could suggest you anything I would like you to first run a Client Diagnostics Tool available here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/wsus/bb466192.aspx

    Thank you very much for the help Mauricio which solved all my problems. When I ran that Client Diagnostics Tool, it told me that my Automatic Updates service wasn't running. I simply started the same and rebooted my computer. That’s it. Problem solved.
