  • Weird behavior in WSUS

    Hi,

    I have installed WSUS on a W2003 server on my domain, and i have a weird behavior happening.

    i have created 5 groups for the machines:
    desktops (10)
    laptops (21)
    servers (5)
    domain controllers (2)
    test machine (2)

    plus the: "all computers" (40) and "unassigned" (0) groups.


    the group that contains the laptops is giving me a headache.

    There should be 34 laptops appearing in the list, but there are only 21 at the moment.

    Today, I decided to go around and check on the missing laptops what was wrong.

    I went to work to laptop02 and I did a "windows update" to go directly to the microsoft site.

    While I was on the site, the notification about a new patch appeared, so i stopped the downloads from the windows update and got the updates from the WSUS.

    I went to check on the WSUS and laptop02 had appeared in the list, but there were still 21 laptops appearing only.

    I then went to work on laptop 27 and the same happened.

    I went back to the WSUS and laptop02 had disappeared from the WSUS!!


    I do not understand why this happens. Is there a maximum to the number of machines a WSUS can take care of? It seems to be topped off at 40.


    Thanks in advance

      yes, they have been imaged using drive image.

      As there were 30-odd machines to do over the weekend, i had someone help me, and i guess he did not use newsid as i did.

      thanks for the pointer =)

      i will run newsid on the machines that give me the problem.
