Some Clients Show Up in WSUS admin, Some Don't

    I have WSUS on a 2003 Standard server. I created 1 new OU and populated it
    with 15 domain users. I created the WSUS GPO, and bound it to the new OU. 9
    of the Client Computers show up in the WSUS admin computer group (using
    computer-based targeting although I have tried it without also). The other 6
    don't. I have checked and they have the latest WSUS version of windows
    update, and I ran the MS client tool, and they all pass. Any ideas where I
    can go from here to troubleshoot this problem?

    All the client computers are running XP w/ SP2, and we have another server
    in the domain running SUS. I don't think that is interferring, but I guess
    it could be.

    Any thoughts?

  2. The WSUS GPO is a Computer Policy, and as such, should be bound to an OU
    containing Computer accounts, not User accounts.
    Verify that the policy is being correctly applied to the clients.

    I misspoke, sorry. The OU that I have bound the WSUS GPO to contains roughly
    15 computer accounts, not users!

    The policy does seem to be taking affect. ie. I change the scheduled time
    for the automatic install of new updates, and wait for AD to replicate, and
    if I check the local reg on the client machines that aren't showing up in
    WSUS admin, the time is updated. Hope that makes sense!!

    Were any of the 6 clients that aren't showing imaged with ghost or some other
    cloning software? MS has articles pertaining to WSUS where cloned or imaged
    machines won't show up in WSUS admin console.....There is a quick reg fix for
    it........Look it up.
