Does anyone know a way to force clients to back to checking WSUS for updated and not Microsoft?

We have recently got our WSUS server working but my machine doesnt report or pull down updates...i get this error on my machine:
The GPO is denied aswell on my machine saying the GPO is 'Empty' but works fine on all other machines?? is there a way of resetting it? Im guessing OP has simular problems
Try running a batch file containing the following:
See if that gets you anywhere.Code:net stop wuauserv REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v AccountDomainSid /f REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v PingID /f REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientId /f net start wuauserv wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

might be worth clearing the "software distribution" folder from the client and then forcing it to reauth with the WSUS box
tried the script, no luck. Also renamed the software distribution foloder and no luck there either
I've had that error a lot and its due to the WSUS server taking an update that means all the clients need an "optional" set of patches -_- Once you find them and tell it to deploy them via WSUS it magically starts to work again in my experience. Its a joke that it seems to have slipped out without much warning.
isnt there an option to as you approve updates that dependencies are installed as well (i mean linux has been able to do this for ages when installing packages)
Error code 0x8024402C when you try to install updates on Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web sites
Unable to Download Updates from WSUS, Error 0x8024402c - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki
WSUS: Client sync fails with 80072ee7 and 0x8024402c errors in WindowsUpdate.log - The WSUS Support Team Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs
wuinstall shoud be able to do the trick. With this command you can specify the WSUS you want to use: /use_wsus wsus_address
or you can set it in group policy (Computer config - windows settings - admin templates - windows components - windows update )
or running a reg key like
some of your options will vary depending on when and how you schedule the installations
