Hi,
  This problem is related to a recent installation of WSUS onto a
Windows2003 server on a winnt pdc. I have setup the WSUS clients with a local
gpo(no active directory) to download updates from the server.

On the WSUS server the following error occurs:
One or more update service components could be be contacted. Check your
server status and ensure that the windows server update service is running.
Non-running services: ContentSyncAgent, WSUSService.

The clients do not receive any updates from the server.

I will be grateful for any help received,

                                                    Mark Palmer.
