    what's the standard of WSUS to differentiate one computer from another, it's
    NIC, or OS's GUID, or SN of hardware? how could make WSUS recognize a old
    computer as a new one?

    if a wuau client doesn't communicate with WSUS, how long time will WSUS
    re-recognize the new OS on the old machine?

    when is the schedule that WSUS's sql engin do some cleaning job, at midnight?

    i need your help, thanks.

  3. A GUID stored in the registry value "SusClientID" in the registry key
    which is stored in the WSUS database when the client successfully
    'registers' with the WSUS server.
    Well... if a WUA client doesn't communicate with WSUS, the answer to any
    "how long" question is FOREVER. The clients is responsible for all
    communications; if the client cannot communicate, the WSUS server knows
    There is no application-engineered database maintenance. If you're using SQL
    Server, your DBA should set up a standard database maintenance plan.
