    Sorry, previous post should be a question. Hopefully this will get a proper
    response.:

    I just deployed a new WSUS on a server 2008 box. I have the WSUS groups
    showing in the new console, and new computers reporting to the new WSUS.
    The computers who are reporting to the old server (server 2003) are not, and
    are still reporting to the old one.
    I have edited the GP to point to the new WSUS. Still no luck. Can anyone
    help? Thanks in advance.
    Also, ones who are reporting to the new WSUS are sitting in the "computer"
    ou, while the ones who aren't are placed in specific OU's. Would that make a
    difference?

    Here is the output of the of the diag. tool:

  2. It sounds as if the group policy object that you changed is being overridden by
    one that you've forgotten about.

    Use gpresult on the command line to check which GPOs the client is looking at.

    Also try gpupdate in case the clients aren't updating properly.

  3. It's also worth noting that this URL appears incorrect.

    If there is a WSUS server on vuapp04, I suspect it is on port 8530.

    Try http://vuapp04:8530 as your WSUS URL.
