Have you tried running the client / server tools to diagnose any issues?
Windows Server Update Services Tools and Utilities
Since the last patch was applied none of the clients are updateing or registering with the server, any ideas? Event viewer throws up some sync error, but not today,
I have reinstalled from scratch but still nada. (also checked wus gpo)
Everything passed on client
And the Server?
Yeah that tool is a little more indepth, I am needing to read the instructions,
Ok seems to be working now, I will have to wait for the settings to tricle down to the clients.
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.
That might be of use actually,
Here you go.
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.
MM had a problem with no clients showing. Deleted susid key in registry. Seemed to work then. Might have 'old' one still..
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.
