WSUS3 Server with WSUS2 Downstream Servers

    I have a WSUS3 Server at the Main site and WSUS2 on our other sites (Win2000
    Svrs Only)

    After the 1st synch the Computer groups & Updates replicated to WSUS2 Svr
    without a problem.

    The problem I have now is that the WSUS2 Svr is showing that all the
    computers have a unknows status for all the updates so I do not know if a PC
    requires updates.

    Is this the case or is something amiss???

    Thanks in Advance

  2. Depends...... when did you deploy these machines. Have the clients ever
    updated successfully from the WSUS2onWin2000 servers before?

    If so.. what did you change on those servers, or what did you change in

    "Unknown status" is a normal indication between the time an update is
    approved and the client actually executes a detection.

    The key question is: Are the clients malfunctioning, or were you expecting
    immediate responses?
