I have a Windows Server 2003 machine that has been successfully running WSUS for more than two years. Almost all our PCs are running Windows XP and they are getting updates without any problems. We are slowly migrating those Windows XP PCs to Windows 7.

Now my Window 7 PCs are not getting any updates. Is there any known issue with WSUS on Server 2003 that might prevent Windows 7 clients from receiving updates? What else could be preventing updates from being applied?
