    How often are they scheduled to check for updates? (one of the WSUS GPO settings)

    Normally, just give it time...

      i am not sure how often they are scheduled....have n't changed that setting yet...

      i have realized some machines are reporting under installed/not applicable status - 99%..is this normal?

      others are still showing the " this computer has not reported status yet"

        You should look at your Group Polciy settings to make sure A) the clients are directed to your WSUS server, and B) what the time of day is set to for them to check in.

        Look under Computer \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Windows Update. Read the descriptions and make settings changes as needed for your system. Pick a client, issue 'gpupdate /force' from a cmd prompt, then restart it. Once it's booted back up, you can force the client to check into WSUS with the command 'wuauclt /detectnow'. That command will appear to finish immediately, but it actually runs a process in the background. Give it something like 5 minutes, and if an Update icon doesn't appear in the System Tray next to the clock, have a look at the client's log files for WSUS. That text file is C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log. The newest entries are at the bottom. Any errors will be hilited as 'WARNING' in one of the columns. The Web abounds with descriptions and solutions for the various errors you may see.

        Good hunting.

            Re: WSUS - "this computer has not reported status yet"

            You can open a report on an individual computer to see missing updates -- note there are some WSUS updates that WSUS wants to push to non-WSUS servers (it detects the client and "demands" the update) so 100% is not normally achievable.

            Have no XP machines shown up at all? As long as the WSUS GPO applies to them, they should appear without issues.

            Have you set up computer groups in WSUS?

                for causes for the machine not picking up the WSUS server (plus do a GPResult to check the policy is applying to the machine) -- as I said, no technical reason they should not appear if they have picked up the GPO

                      when the XP machines are not checking in, have a look at C:\windows\windowsupdate.log - this will give you ample information to try to troubleshoot why it won't work

                            recently did a wsus installation on a windows server 2012 standard, and its pretty straightforward .....compared to wins server 2003.
