    Hi ALL,

    I'm using WSUS v2.0 SP1 with SQL 2005 Standard Edition running on Windows
    2003 Server with SP1. Two day before, when we tried to approve the updates
    for installation. Click on "Approve for installation" --> Make the default
    Approval to "Detect only" and select two computer group and select them to
    "Install" --> Click the "OK" button and we got the error "The server could
    not be contacted. Please try again". The computer group contains Windows
    2000/2003 servers only and the "Computer options" is configured to "use
    group policy or registry settings on computers". When I rebooted the WSUS
    server, one of the computer group disappeared and one of the servers
    (assigned to the computer group) is appearred on the "Unassigned Computers
    Group". Do anyone have the same problem before?
