WSUS 3 not downloading updates while still downloading metadata

    I am running a Windows 2k3 SBS server and wsus3,
    Wsus wont download updates but will download metadata and say the updates
    are available for install. When i try manually importing the updates this
    also works. Wsus 3 is set up to bypass the proxy server and the Cisco router
    isnt blocking any of the files.

    Help Please!

  2. Issues with faling to download update content from are
    generally documented in the Application Event Log. That would be the first
    place to look for clues.

    However, if WSUS says the updates are available for installation, then this
    suggest the update content HAS been successfully downloaded. So your
    statements are somewhat contradictory. Can you please confirm the actual
    status of the WSUS Server and the update metadata and content.
