    Greetings,

    Installed WSUS and followed instructions. I have 12 clients. 10 show up
    everytime 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.

    Hi JStoner,

    Thank you for posting in SBS newsgroup.

    From your description, I understand 2 client computers can not appear in
    WSUS together. If I have misunderstood your concerns, please do not
    hesitate to let me know.

    The problem should be a WSUS problem; I would suggest you post it in the
    microsoft.public.windows.server.update_services newsgroup. The reason why
    we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool
    of respondents, and other partners who read the newsgroups regularly can
    either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.

    Currently, I can only provide the following documents for your reference:
