Windows Update (WSUS 3.0) Does not push patches
This was working fine, before we updated it to 3.0 but, later on stopped
pushing patches to workstations and servers.

We have created several groups in WSUS 3.0 and have moved the PC's and
Servers accordingly like for example DESKTOPS, SERVERS, TEST MACHINES etc.. I
have defined this in the WSUS Group Policy under Target Computers and I link
the policy to the correct OU, but still it looks that the desktops are not
receiving the patches.

Can I check something else, that would fix this issue. I even rolled it back
to WSUS 2.0 but still does not work. So, I upgraded it back to WSUS 3.0. Any
assistance with this will be helpful.

thanks in advance!

I would start with verifying that your policies are being properly applied.

1. Inspect the WindowsUpdate.log at the "Service Startup" section to verify
the configuration is correct, and/or

2. Run RSOP or GPRESULT to inspect the policies, and/or

3. Run the Client DIagnostic Tool and verify the WUA can communicate with
the WSUS Server.
