WSUS Client status / reporting RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I have windows 2012 r2. We are using WSUS to push out updates (non domain).

    I have several computers that I have removed from WSUS, that re-appear on the WSUS server a few hrs later.. but have no status.

    I have tried stopping the wuauserv and running

    wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization

    wuauclt.exe /detectnow 
    wuauclt.exe /reportnow    

    This does not make the PC report a status.

    I have also tried resetting the SUSClientID. This also does not make the PC's report a correct status.

    The computers are getting updates through the WSUS server - which is good!

    Any help would be great. Thanks

  • so you removed them but you want them to now stay in WSUS or is your goal to have them removed permanently?

    I think it's best for all the endpoints having this issue to delete the following registry keys under the WindowsUpdate key:

    PingID

    AccountDomainSid

    SusClientId

    SusClientIDValidation

    restart the windows update service and wait for a bit
