    Have you tried running the client / server tools to diagnose any issues?

    Cool. I have a script that you can run from the server that makes the client re autherise with the server if it will help.

    Arghhhh,

    Its still not work right,

    I only ever seem to see around 6 computers in the console. Some op in and then pop out for a while, clicking refresh does not help. Its set to show computers with any status.

    I have been through IIS and the settings there seem to be right, the diag tool for the client now has a clean bill of helath.



    Now the install said to point clients at server:8530/clientupdate Is this correct, the instructions that from MS say to point them at :8530 no slash no directory.

    hmmf

    turn off the automatic apply of patches and updates, set it to download them and you will do them in the half terms, that way any problems you come across you have time to fix it.

    Workstations appearing then disappearing is due to duplicate SUS SIDs on the workstation. I presume this is since you've installed WSUS 3.0 SP2? I haven't installed it to any of my servers yet, still on WSUS 3.0 SP1.

    If you don't install in the default directory (which would be port 80), in AD specify the server location as: http://servername:8530 for both fields. Then try running gpupdate /force on a few machines. This won't resolve the duplicate SID however. You'll need to fix this, then all machines will 'check in' to WSUS.

    Any idea of an easy way to test this or deploy it? Tearing my hair out here, though I am due to ghost the whole system soon.
