    I have approved the following two patches on my wsus server but all of my
    clients show the patch as being "detect only" and is a required patch.

    I have tried approving all the patches that they superceed but still no joy.

    If u go to windowsupdate.com from a client they detect its a required update
    and install it fine.

    Any ideas how I get my clients to change their status from "detect only" to
    "install"?

    Thanks

  2. Well.. first off you don't change "clients" to "install"... you change
    the patch state from "detect" to install. Clients then detect that
    patch, download it and queue it for installation.

    As you say it still says "detect only" I suspect that your settings for
    that patch are wrong.

    Go to the page where you see "detect only". click the Patch name (not
    "detect only", but the name itself) and change its approval state from
    Detect Only to Install. If you've setup Computer Groups you can specify
    a setting for each group, if not, then just change the Default.

    Then within 22 hours the clients will of downloaded, and depending on
    your setup will install at the time/day youve specified by policy.
