Some permissions got changed where they shouldn't have, the
SUS-server queried itself for updates, instead of the MS-servers,
and so on... Also the test install and run I did at home, left some
some registry settings I just couldn't remove manually, so the GPOs
from home accidentally got spread to all computers on the dept
domain, and all pointed to Specifically, when
deploying the sus-clients using GPOs, a WU-template also gets
installed (telling the client when, how often and from where to get
the updates). This particular template had the settings from home,
and accidentally spread over the dept network resulting in a major
bummer... 8-(

I finished reinstalling the entire SUS-package, and remade the GPO.
Went much faster this way, than looking for registry settings all
over the place. 8-]

No harm was done in the process. Except my self-confidence, which
got a bump... 8-}
