    Updates failed to be installed

    Hi,

    I run WSUS 3.0 on SBS 2003. The GP is configured to download/install
    automatically. There are a few updates failed to be installed on a few
    workstations, not all workstations. In the status screen, it always shows 99%
    in the Installed/Not Applicable Percentage. How can I figure out the reason
    they can't be installed?

    Need help!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Lisa,

    Maybe start with reviewing the Windowsupdate.log file on the clients where
    the updates failed, checking for error codes. Then you can narrow down the
    problem.
