I'm setting up a tiger server to serve software updates to the clients, but the server doesn't seem to want to serve the updates. The client can connect to the server, but then shows the user a message saying the computer is up to date. I know that is not true, and I have all the updates mirrored, so why is it not working? If nobody has any idea, is there somewhere that says exactly what the software update client goes through to check if there are updates available, so I can follow it manually?

we use the Software Update Server Service on our XServe with Mac OS X 10.6.4.Nearly all works great, even we have no problems with client updating though we're having 10.4, 10.5 und 10.6 client systems. But at the Server Admin tool where you can administrate the available updates the Xcode 3.2.2 update isn't able to activate. It's alreay downloaded, but i only see it if i click the little update button on the right side under the list of available updates and then after hooking the checkbox of it and clicking "Save" it's gone again, until i refresh the list once again of the aforesaid update button where it will be shown as unchecked again. I don't understand what here the problem is. All other updates aren't accompanied of those phenomenons. Software Update Server Log has no errors if i check the Xcode Update and system.log only says "Host configuration updated", any time i'm trying to activate this update.I'm using Server Admin Tools 10.6.3 and tried locale on the server machine as well as remote on my macbook without noticeable differences.I hope anyone can help or give a tip/trick.
