    WSUS Error1.jpg

    this is what i get when going in to server manager. I have a feeling thats its something to do with IIS.

    Nothing is helping me. Event log is not showing any errors.

    (i have restarted the server and i got no errors in IIS or WSUS event logg since i restarted it)

    If I remember right it's something to do with duplicate SusClientIDs, the conflicts mean they won't appear on the console. (It might be something else but it sounds it's most likely this issue, though I'm sure one of the veterans will correct me if I'm wrong!)

    Try this article: Resolving the duplicate SUSClientID issue, or (I can't find the original article I used, le sigh.)

    Alrighty. It's either down to the clients self-update having problems or it's the IIS, though I didn't need to dabble this far so I'm not going to be much use I'm afraid. However I did find these, hopefully they might help!

    Client computers do not appear in the WSUS console

    I know this might sound odd. Do i need to add it to the proxy by-pass?

    Not odd at all, yes you do! Weren't you given any prompts about proxy settings when setting it up? (just curious, it's been ages since I used WSUS)

    If the proxy's in WinHTTP that's all you should have to do.. otherwise I'm out of ideas.
