Does sysprep /generalize /oobe reset also the WSUS-SID? RRS feed

  • Hi,

    my question as written in title.

    Does sysprep /generalize /oobe reset also the WSUS-SID?

    I sysprepped a cloned Windows Server 2008R2 but it seems as the WSUS-ID is still similar to the existing old server. I recognize it when searching for the old servername in my WSUS-MMC. It is disappeared... It was replaced with the new Server it seems. If i search manually for Updates on my old system i find again the old system in WSUS-MMC but the new cloned server-entry disappears...

    Kind regards

  • Hi,

    please take a look into the following article for detailed deep dive information:

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/markrussinovich/2009/11/03/the-machine-sid-duplication-myth-and-why-sysprep-matters/

    "..Note that Sysprep resets other machine-specific state that, if duplicated, can cause problems for certain applications like Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), so Microsoft’s support policy will still require cloned systems to be made unique with Sysprep.."

    To check if the WSUS-ID is equal, you can take a look into the following Reg-Key:

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\SUSClientID

    Further you can manually reset your WSUS ID (e.g. in case of Troubleshooting) with the following steps:

    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


    net stop wuauserv
    net start wuauserv
    wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow

  • Generalize sollte eigentlich alle SID löschen
