    Did you run this tool? What were the results?

    did you make sure that you ran the batch file as an admin?

    manually delete the SusClientID reg key. reboot. wuauclt /detectnow

    Weird, if I do it manually (and reboot)...it works straightaway.

    that says to me that the batch file didnt execute properly. make sure you are running the file as an admin. try logging in as local admin and running just the part of the batch file to delete the reg keys.

    Will have to log them all on and try it manually in one fell swoop, I think. Got 2 of 3 appearing now, but they rotate depending on which order I log on. Will report back shortly!

    EDIT: Sorry Ad, didn't see your post. I was running the batch file as a network admin, which should also be local admin, will try just logging on locally first.

    OK Finally got all 16 Suite machines showing!

    I had to log on locally, then manually stop the auto update service, delete the two reg keys, restart the update service, reboot and voila!

    Ok next step...!

    WSUS is set to sync at 3am, and that seems to be working fine. The GPO setting is that computers download and schedule updates for 12pm, although

    a) it doesn't seem to be doing anything, as you still have to 'install updates and shut down',


    and b) windowsupdate.log states that after logon, the AU schedule is set to Friday at 3pm...when you go into the windows update settings locally, it does indeed state Friday 3pm, but these options are greyed out, as you might expect.

    a) there is an option within GP to download and install. The first option within the GP is "Do not display 'download and install' option in shut down... , You will want to check the Allow immediate installation of updates too.

    b) if you have set the group policy to download updates at a certain time, then if you try to change it locally, you wont be able to. Check the policy to make sure that the time you want is correct.

    Have you changed the time recently? run a gpupdate /force and check again.

    That's the policy settings at the moment, the auto updates is set to option 4 at 12pm.
    I guess the thing that is confusing me is that I'm not sure whether it should be installing quietly in the background, and waiting for any restart to be done by the user, or whether it just does everything it needs to after selecting 'shut down and install updates'

    the reason that its still displaying install updates and shutdown is because you have disabled the option to 'Do not display...'. that should be enabled.

    are the updates being installed?? if you look in the WSUS console it will give you a couple of pie charts to give you that info.

    Sorry, been caught up with a couple of other things today, so not had much time to have a look.

    Just popped on though, and last night's synchronisation downloaded 6 new updates, but they all still show as 'needed', and 12pm has been and gone!


    Interesting side note, the 30 netbooks we have, which were also cloned machines, have now shown up successfully, without me having to do any messing about with SIDs.

    Well I've left WSUS alone for a few days, and although it is syncing and what not, I'm still not wholly convinced it's actually doing updates at 11am. One of the client machines has this in the logs, still:

    So it is still insisting on Friday 3pm...

    what if you try removing the time schedule policy. gpupdate /force. change the time locally. reinstate policy.see if the time changes back to Friday at 3pm.

    Save yourself the effort of running commands on lots of different machines - use psexec from the excellent pstools collection (free).

    \pstools\psexec -u administrator -p xxx %1 gpupdate /force /boot /target:computer

    Runs gpupdate on machine %1 (stick admin password where xxx is).

    For a roomfull, list the machine names in machines.txt and run

    \psexec -u administrator -p xxx @machines.txt gpupdate /force /boot /target:computer
