Trying to give something back to the Community...
I saw this posted over on The Configuration Manager Support Team Blog and thought it worth sharing:
“Hello System Center,
In this post I'd like to share information gleaned from a quarters worth of support incidents as regards Configuration Manager 2007 Software Update Points configuration and operations. The goal is for this post to help by providing details on common problems driving calls to support and is focused on the area involving the SUP operations.
It is worth noting that Windows Software Update Server (WSUS) is a key dependency for the Software Update Point (SUP). When WSUS isn't happy, the SUP is also going to have a bad day... Along with this it’s crucial to allow WSUS to be configured by Configuration Manager - as independent configuration of the WSUS Server usually ends in tears, or at least an unruly conflict.”
