    WSUS cannot see clients

    Hi,

    I have installed WSUS but it cannot see any client Machines. I have configured a GPO to point at the server but still nothing. Does anyone have any ideas or ways to test.

    thanks all

    Have you configured the WinHTTP proxy settings with the client side 'proxycfg.exe' tool?
    How have the machines been deployed? Are they imaged?

    Re: WSUS cannot see clients

    Ok, assuming the WinHTTP settings are correct it might be the Windows Update client on the machines is too old. You can force this issue using the following command:

    Code:
    wuauclt /installAUclientFromMicrosoft
    or
    Code:
    wuauclt /installAUclient
    Alternatively, something might of gone wrong with IIS. Are there any errors in the event log on the WSUS server related to IIS or WSUS directly?

    Just a thought... have the machines definitely received the updated GPO? It might be worth running gpupdate on a couple to make sure.

    varied combinations of:

    Code:
    /force
    Code:
    /sync
    Code:
    /boot
    with gpupdate always generally work for me

    Re: WSUS cannot see clients

    Have you checked the windowsupdate.log file in the system dir on a client ?
    That may give you a few clues as to whats going on [ or not ]
    If you don't see your WSUS server name in there then you know its not getting the policy correctly......
