In a suite of 18 identical PCs all with an identical image, I can guarantee that one will only pick up WSUS updates if it feels like it. All the others do it more or less simultaneously. I have never got to the bottom of why ICT-09 has a mind of its own.

ICT1-19; currently the bane of my life.

I solved my issue with the one weird PC. Renamed LABB5 TO B2 and no longer have issues. True sorry.

Maybe we need to have a name and shame thread to attempt to embarrass these rogue machines into conforming. It's as likely to work as anything else that I have tried!

I HATE YOU
You keep falling off the domain for no reason and of course you belong to one of the teachers who does NOT rate what I do and who makes me want to wander about with my qualifications on a bit of card around my neck

Anything with a SOCRM-NNN machine name - these are the rubbish RM P4-era pieces of junk.

I have had similar problems with a bunch of Win 7 VMs running under HyperV, all imaged using MDT. When installing software using SCCM some work immediately, some don't.

Grade 7 History does not count as valid qualifications though!
wander about with my qualifications
Some of us would be in BIG trouble if people started asking about qualifications!

I'm not saying that qualifications are necessary or a good thing - it is just that one teacher who I KNOW feels that I am "beneath" her might just behave differently (yes, not right I know) if she knew I had been to college. TBH anything for a quiet life.
