    On a couple of servers WSUS 2.0 is showing that a patch is needed and set to
    install. I have verified the patch was install successfully but WSUS still
    shows the patch is needed

  2. Suggesting that the client has not successfully reported the status to the
    WSUS server after installation of the patch.

    What does the WindowsUpdate.log file have recorded for the 30 minutes
    following the sucessful installation of the patch?

    Specifically with regard to calls to the "ReportingEventWebService".

    To narrow the time range down, you can also inspect the System Event Log,
    which also records the installation of the update.
