Change wsus server on client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have several clients that point through GPO to wsusserver1.

    Now I deployed wsusserver2 and modified GPO in order to point to this one, but in wsusserver2 console, in computer list, I cannot see my clients. They are still handled by wsusserver1. How can I say "wsusserver1, don't manage my clients anymore, let do it by wsuserver2"? What happens if I delete the client from wsuserver1?

    (Obviously I verified that the new policy has been received by the clients).

    Thank you

  • Hi

    If you do a gpupdate /force on one of the machines does it update?

  • Hi, the gpupdate works correctly, I am working also on other policies and when I run gpupdate and gpresult I can see new policies applied correctly. But it seems that clients are still managed by the old server, also if on the old server the "last status report" is not a recent date, while other clients that have never been registered on the old server (only in the new one) has a "last status report" updated to today on the new wsus server.

    Sounds to me like you did not properly implement the GPO.

    Based on this description, your GPO for the downstream server is not being applied.

    Did you create a *NEW* GPO.. or did you edit the GPO that already applied to these systems?
