WSUS Clients Registered But Not Displaying Status when deployed from image

Posted in Windows 2003, Windows 2008 with tags , , on June 26, 2011 by uniekdevries

When you deploy a server from an image or template the WSUS client is not visible in the WSUS Admin Console because of the duplicate WSUS Client ID. The following steps will reset the existing duplicative client IDs:

gpupdate

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
cls
@echo Triggering detection after resetting WSUS client identity
net stop wuauserv
net start wuauserv
wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow
