    Our LEA provide us with their own WSUS which works like a dream so i might be worth a phone call to see if yours does the same.

    DL it from:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/win...ools/WSUS.mspx

    DL and read the Operations Guide - [ all the documentation is on that link ]
    I have it syncing up everyday at 03:30am, clients do checking at 12 noon, they will DL the updates and wait till the next day before installing them. They DO NOT automatically reboot - [ a setting in the group policy ]

    Forgot to add - ver 3 link:

    Sorry for the epic bumpage, but can you post your GPO settings? I can't get WSUS to see anything, it constantly says that 0 computers are registered to receive updates.

    Have you made sure that IIS is running and that the WSUS site is started? That was a mistake I made.

    go to one of the clients and type wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow at the command line. That will force the client to show in WSUS

    Thanks, it is synchronising at the minute, so will investigate once it's done, I suspect I'm being stupid and this is because this is the first sync.

    Ok, it doesn't seem to matter whether I use the Update Services console or GPO to assign computers to groups, no computers appear in the list...even after hefty amounts of GPupdate-ing.

    Am I missing something really obvious?

    have a look at the WSUS Client Diagnostics Tool here. might throw some light on the situation.

    Haha, this is brilliant!

    I've somehow managed to get one classroom's machines appearing, and one of the ICT Suite machines. But the Suite machine changes as I go round and force gpupdate...!

    Do you clone the machines?

    rem Fixes problem with client machines not showing up on the server due to imaging method

    reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Win dowsUpdate /v AccountDomainSid /f
    reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Win dowsUpdate /v PingID /f
    reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Win dowsUpdate /v SusClientId /f
    cls
    @echo Triggering detection after resetting WSUS client identity
    net stop wuauserv
    net start wuauserv
    wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow
    pop that into a batch file and run on a computer. see if it makes a difference.

    Yes, try that script, got a few connecting for me last week when I found it. Would there be any mileage putting this as a startup script to make sure all computers are connecting as not sure how to check which PC's are not connecting from all our PC's on the network (other than manually going through a prinrted list).

    I ran the batch file on two machines (Ict-09 and ICT-10) and the same thing happened, 10 appeared in the list, and then after running it on 9, 10 disappeared and 9 appeared!

    Was just going to suggest - NewSID (Windows XP only). That sounds very much like the issue. You'll need to run it on every machine that's been cloned (or sysprep them if you haven't already, but that's another debate).
