    Just set WSUS up in a test enviroment and im getting an error regarding my
    client machine "Not Reported Status Yet" in the computers section. The
    computer is added to a test group and this is a Fresh Windows XP SP" client,
    2003 Server SP1.
    My server is fine it's just the client where im having the problem.

    Any idea's.

    I don't know if it'll relate to your specific situation but I had an issue
    last week where two pc's were imaged with the same Windows seat id from
    Dell... WSUS will only recognize the most current machine put on the network.

    Try there first...

  3. "Not Yet Reported" is a normal indication between the time a client first
    registered (and probably is selfupdating), and completes a detection cycle,
    including a reporting event. This delay is normally about 20-30 minutes,
    though, so if it has been more than an hour since the client "Last
    Contacted" the WSUS server, you may have a malfunction on the client side.

    Start by running the Client Diagnostic Tool and posting the results. If the
    output of the CDT looks normal (post the results anyway), then continue by
    inspecting the %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log for error diagnostics.

  4. Kristin.... as pertains to your last sentence:
    What actually happens it that WSUS recognizese the most recent machine that
    /reports/ to the WSUS server if those machines have been built from
    improperly prepared images.

    If you're able to monitor the server closely, and frequently enough, you'll
    actually see the machine name bounce between the two identical clients, as
    each one executes a detection/reporting event.
