Automatic Update Client does not download & Update
Configuration: SUS server=Windows 2000 Server=member server=SP4. I can do a sync. with Windows Update server, download the catalog as well as updates and approve them to make them available for downloading by clients.
Client Computers=Windows 2000 Pro,DHCP Clients, on SP4,Windows update client SP1. Controlled by GPO.
The problem starts when my clients have to do an update.What happens is that I see a Windows Update notification(Downloading) on my taskbar, it goes as far as 0% and then disappears.
Heres my event log.

I had a look at C:\Program Files\WindowsUpdate\V4 and there is a txt file called iuident.txt and the strings within this file do not point to my SUS server( http://imamba) they instead point to the Microsoft Windows Update Server as per attached ( could this be where the problem is?)
I have also verified my Windows Update GPO settings,they are ok and also my SUS server points client to it for downloads.
