I've got a number of computers (most of them) that are not connecting and syncing with the WSUS update server I have on my network. I've done some research and followed the instructions according to this article (http://mcpmag.com/co...itorialsID=1271). Unfortunately the computers are still not showing up on the server console. The client machines are running Windows 2000 and XP and the server is running 2003 standard. The WSUS version is 3.1.6001.65. Does anyone have ideas on how to get these machines to sync up? Thanks
*edit* There is also an existing gpo on the server for WSUS. It directs updates to the correct update server.
*edit* Computers that also have a computer-side GPO pointing updates to the WSUS server also do not show
I was surfing the logs today as well as trying to do more troubleshooting. I reinstalled WSUS to see if it was the program having an error and nothing has changed except for now that there are no computers in the console. IN the event logs I found this message, thinking it has something to do with it but not sure.
Event ID: 18456
User: NT AUTHORITY/NETWORK SERVICE
Description: Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY/NETWORK SERVICE'. [CLIENT: <named pipe>]
When I check for more information on MS's website I get no help.
