The GP settings for Windows Update configuration on my domain don't ever apply to Windows 8 workstations in the domain. Opening GP Edit on an on a Windows 8 administrative workstation shows the policies that I want to see on Windows 8, but when I open a local GP Edit on the same Windows 8 workstation, the settings aren't applied. I have tried forcing gpupdate and get no error related to it, yet it never applies. Correct me if I am wrong, but the WindowsUpdate.admx file on the workstation should be referenced while using the GP editor from that workstation, so it doen't appear to be a problem with the admx file being used.
The settings are all in Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Windows Update. They are appearing on Windows 7 workstations. I have my WSUS server set there, etc., but the workstations are not getting the updates from WSUS.
What do I neded to do to get the Windows 8 settings to work as expected?
