  • Hello Mohanrajlive,

    1. Check if the firewall on client block traffic on port 8530, we may turn off the firewall to check if it could work;

    2. Check if reset windows update component on clients could work:

    How to reset windows update component:

    3. Try restart the computer and restart windows update service

    4. Also run server cleanup wizard on WSUS server to check the result.

    5.If it still doesn't work, you may post the detailed event log on client for further troubleshooting.

    Also go through below link:

  • Hi,
      

    First check if any client can access the WSUS server. Check the method You can use a browser on the client computer to access the address of the following structure:
      

    • http://WSUSserverNAME:PortNUM/selfupdate/iuident.cab
      (e.g http://WSUSserver001:8530/selfupdate/iuident.cab)
        

    And make sure you can open/download the file. Otherwise check the connection between the client and the server.
      

    Secondly, please confirm that the clients of these batches are built using a unified template? This may result in duplicate SusClientID values. For reference, the following script can also implement this feature, please execute in the elevated CMD on the client computers:
      

    net stop bits
    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
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientIDValidation /f
    rd /s /q "C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution"
    net start bits
    net start wuauserv
    wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow % For Windows 7 % usoclient.exe startscan % For Windows 10 %
      

    Then check if this part of the client computer can be detected in the WSUS console.
    Reply back with the results would be happy to help.

    Your Clients are cloned, most of them have the same SUSClientID, this
    is the reason for only 23 Clients.
