    Greetings,

    Installed WSUS and followed instructions. I have 12 clients. 10 show up
    every time and 2 only interminently and never at the same time.

    About the clients:

    Dell SX260 Latest Firmware XP Pro
    Server knows they are there (Screensaver GPO active on both clients)
    Two clients share a switch.
    Both can connect and browse the network simultaneously.
    User logged into both clients

    Summary

    When they do show up in WSUS its never together.

    Any help would be appreciated cause this one is a real stumper

  2. Hi,

    Sounds like a issue where the SusClientId is the same on several
    computers.

    If a source computer for an image is connected to a WSUS server, before
    you create the image, to avoid problems, you must under the registry key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate

    delete the following values:

    AccountDomainSid
    PingID
    SusClientId


    On the computers you already have running, you need to delete the
    same 3 registry values listed above.

    A couple of scripts in the links below that handles the registry values
    AccountDomainSid, PingID and SusClientId.
