Computer shows update as not been installed when update not applicable.

    I have one computer in wsus 3 showing that 1 update has not been installed,
    when it is in a group that the update is not required.

    To expand on this, the computer was originally added to a group .Net 2.0 by
    mistake, and .net 2.0 was scheduled to be installed on it, downloaded and
    wasiting for its install time.

    The miustake was noticed and the computer as moved to a 1.1 .Net group.

    Since that time, it still marks 1 update as not installed (the .net 2.0)
    despite it not being approved.

    I have tried deleting the computer completely and re-adding it to the .1.1
    group with a /detectnow but this still leaves the .net 2.0 update as not
    been installed.

    How can i fix this?

  2. Updates normally show as "not installed" even if they are not approved for a
    particular group. Is this not happening for the other computers in that group?
    What sort of report are you doing?

    I should clarify. It lists .net Update as 'needed' and with a warning
    triangle in the Update Services MMC.

    In the Computer Report it says it is "not approved" and "not installed"

    It is the only update visible when i run a report for 'needed' on this

  4. Yes, that's normal. "Needed" in this context means "applicable and not
    installed" and doesn't take approvals into consideration.

    Yet, one other member of the 1.1 .net group shows 100% and .net 2.0 as not

    That could well be the case, however, in this group, there is one other
    server, and it shows the same update as Installed/Not Applicable rather
    than Needed.

    Clearly the result is inconsistent!

    (The update is unapproved for the 1.1 Group.)

  8. Yep, but it's the other machine that's behaving anomalously. Perhaps you should
    doublecheck that it hasn't inadvertently acquired .NET 2 at some point?

    ... actually I'm assuming here that the update you're refering to is the .NET
    installation itself and not one of the updates to it. What is the update title?

    What OS are the machines running?

    Hmm. Well spotted. The other machine does have .Net 2 installed, although
    it should have.
