Download: Wsus client not detecting approved updates




Does anyone know of any reason for this strange occurance. But as of now none of the solution suggested on those threads have fixed my issue. I have recently set up two new servers on our domain, labelled CADCS001 and CADCS001.

I see a very significant difference in the logs!!! Specifically, inspect the registry key or the log entries of the WindowsUpdate. It is these test servers which are not detecting the updates.

- Doing so with all Important updates has reduced the number reported as pending in WSUS from 131 to 12, so the server is definitely reporting successfully.

 

I've added about 60 client computers to our WSUS to begin updating them. They all have Windows XP Professional and most had never been updated before. Must of these computers are updating successfully but I have 5 that have stopped detecting updates even though WSUS shows they still have a lot of updates they need installed. All of these 5 PCs started updating successfully at first on the first scan one PC was missing 229 updates and it is now missing 201, another was missing 208 on the first scan and now is missing 192 but it has been over a week and they haven't downloaded any additional updates. All updates have been approved 35 other computers have already been fully upgraded. Here is a sample of one of the windowsupdate. The standard scenario for behavior such as this is that either the updates are not yet downloaded to the WSUS Server discounted in this case since other XP machines have successfully upgraded , or that the machine is assigned to invalid group memberships. Since it appears you are using server-side targeting, please verify that this machine conta1. Also, it should be noted that many updates now require the machine to be at the current service pack level. There are hundreds of updates that will not detect on Windows Server 2003 SP1 or Windows XP SP1 systems, and starting next month new updates will not detect on Windows XP SP2 systems, so in addition to checking server-side, you should also verify that the latest service pack is installed on these five systems. All the PCs I'm currently upgrading are assigned to the same computer group in WSUS including these 5 PCs. They all seem to have SP2 installed as well. I don't get why they were able to detect and download some updates in the begining and then sudenly stopped detecting. I'm thinking it may be an issue locally with these PCs because they have been configured the same way as the rest using the same group policy and group assignments in WSUS. You are correct, I am using server-side targeting. All the PCs I'm currently upgrading are assigned to the same computer group in WSUS including these 5 PCs. The second step of this diagnostic is then to confirm that the CLIENT systems are also configured to use Server-Side Targeting. Specifically, inspect the registry key or the log entries of the WindowsUpdate. I also restarted the service in one on the clients that is not detecting updates and in one client that has already been fully updated and I don't see a diference between the logs I'm including a sample of both logs below. I also restarted the service in one on the clients that is not detecting updates and in one client that has already been fully updated and I don't see a diference between the logs I'm including a sample of both logs below. I see a very significant difference in the logs!!! Since the first log is from the PC that was fully updated, it does have SP3 already SP3 was one of the updates it detected and downloaded from my WSUS. SP3 is one of the updates the computers with the issue should be detecting and downloading but they are not. I went ahead and installed Windows XP SP3 manually on a couple of these PCs on Tuesday night but that didn't solve the problem. They are still not detecting the remainig updates they need. Specifically which updates are reported as NotInstalled on the WSUS console that you are expecting to be deployed to this client.

I cannot run the as this is a 64-bit Windows 2008 sol. So clients report to wsus fine, but no updates are found. If client-side, verify the client-side group name exactly matches the WSUS group name in the console. All updates have been approved 35 other computers have already been fully upgraded. If there are updates reported as needed in the print but the client logfile says no updates are available, this is likely a valid and accurate indication. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact tnmff microsoft. Best Regards, Anne Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmark them if they provide no help. North in my defence I must say that I encountered No error while approving the patches or any other abnormalities in the console with the wsusservice. They all have Windows XP Professional and most had never been updated before. Keys get generated after first connect to wsus. Please find my u 1. All the PCs I'm currently upgrading are assigned to the same computer group in WSUS including these 5 PCs.
