Client-Side Targeting Not working on All Machines

    I am using Client-Side Targeting group policy to assign my computers to
    specific groups. Most computers got assgined successfully to their groups
    but many computers simply do not show up on WSUS. I tried to go gpupdate on
    one of the computers and immediately refreshed the console. The computer
    appeared for about a minute and then disappeared again. Has anyone had the
    similar problem? What is the cause and solution to it? Thanks.

  2. Do you have any errors in the windowsupdate.log for these clients?
    They may not be self updating to the new client.

    Thanks Eddie:

    I think the client is contacting the agent, and getting its updates.
    Strangely enough, I just can't see the client within the console. The
    computer is not showing under 'all computers', and not under the custom group
    named 'workstations'. Here is the log I got from the client. Please let me
    know what you think is the problem. Thanks.

    Looks like the clients are self-updated, and they are contacting your
    WSUS server and don't need any approved updates, and they appear to be
    reporting back successfully...

    Are they showing up in your "Unassigned Computers" group? Not sure if
    this is just a typo on your message, but you mention that your custom
    group in WSUS is "workstations" - the policy is pointing them towards
    a target group of "Production - Workstations".

    Honestly, I haven't tried mis-matching names to see what happens
    (intentionally or by accident), and haven't read exactly how the "all
    computers" and "unassigned computers" groups get populated (yet!) so I
    can't tell you for sure, but that's the only thing I noticed out of
    the ordinary in the log files. Could be something else entirely, if
    you just got lazy when you typed the target group name in your
    message, or if someone else notices something out of whack...

    Not that I'm an expert :)

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do not have any accounts in the Unassigned Computers group. I used group
    policy to assign different computers from different OUs to the specified
    groups in WSUS. One thing I found interesting was that every time I perform
    gpupdate on 'missing' computers, they will show up in the console for couple
    minutes and then just disappear. I am not sure why that happens...

    Hmmm... Did they show up in the right groups (while they were there)?

    Have you tried the client and server diagnostic tools, available for
    download at the WSUS download page? Maybe the results of those tools,
    the softwaredistribution/reportingevents log on the client, and some
    information from your server logs and event logs if anything looks odd
    might help someone else troubleshoot - I think I've exhausted the
    little bit of help I can be...

    But there's got to be an error showing up somewhere?
