Hi,

We have a WSUS 3 server serving 60 clients. Everything is working fine,
except: One of these clients have not reported for a couple of weeks.
I did a:

wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

.. on the client, but to no avail.

Furthermore I did:

net stop wuauserv
REG DELETE
"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v
AccountDomainSid /f
REG DELETE
"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v PingID /f
REG DELETE
"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v
SusClientId /f

... and rebooted, but the client still doesn't report to the WSUS server,

I ran rsop.msc on the client and it shows that my WSUS GPO is properly
applied with the correct servername.

However the windowsupdates.log file shows WSUS server name is <null>.

When I do a manual winupdate againse microsoft.com the updates are
correctly downloaded and installed.

An excerpt from the windowsupdates log file is pasted in below

Thanks for any help on this

regards jake

The second statement contradicts the first.

And the log confirms.

I'd guess that you have a second policy object that's overriding the
settings from the one you think is being applied.

This machine scanned against AU/MU, not your WSUS Server.

This happens to some of our clients as well. What I end up doing is

If the WSUS server ends up with a NULL value in windowsupdate.log, make sure that it's properly set in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"WUServer"="HTTP://{your-wsus-server-fqdn}:8530"
"WUStatusServer"="HTTP://{your-wsus-server-fqdn}:8530"

(values are type Reg_SZ)


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000001

Hope this helps
