    It was on it's own machine, but the WSUS is running on the DC so it's probably linked in some way.
    Any idea how to remove the SCCM client or at least revert back so the client see it?

    It wont probably auto link but that doesnt stop the client taking control. To see if its out there goto Collections->All Systems and you should see a Client column which is yes/no
    I am trying to find the damn setting but it eludes me.

I cannot say which of the 18 updates sorted the problem, or why other networked PCs are not (so far) doing this... I have resigned myself to running Microsoft Update manually on the remaining 10 that are refusing to play nicely.

    Hahaha I've had a similar problem. I have 500 clients on my WSUS server but 3-4 will not appear no matter what I try I've deleted the account and ran a selection of scripts and fixes I've even rebuilt them (not imaged). They appear but show as not yet reported and that's it, they even did the same after I introduced a new WSUS server to replace the old one. The odd thing is that they download their updates from WSUS every month but they never report in...wierd

    Have you tried-

    \\path-to\distribution-share\windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe /quiet /norestart
    How to obtain the latest version of the Windows Update Agent to help manage updates on a computer

    This was it! I should have figured this sooner but it didn't occur to me until I was doing something on the default website on that machine. Thanks so much.

    Now to figure out the problem of those that have not been properly ghosted.
