WSUS 3.0 on virtual machine not populating with computers

Posted on 2007-10-02

I installed the new WSUS 3.0 on a virtual machine on my laptop.  It installed fine and all, andI thru GPO directed everybody to go there, but only my DC is showing up in the computer list.  I've double checked and and waited two days, did the gpupdate /force, did the wuauclt.exe /detectnow  and still there's only one computer and it's my domain controller and main server.  Is there anything else I might be missing or something else I could do to get the ball rolling on this virtual WSUS?

    nop. the first ones would help if it was WSUS 2.0, but my issue is with the 3.0 which is a tad different.  The 2.0 if I'm not mistaken had it's own GUI, the 3.0 is like symantec, using an MMC snap in.  I'll search the links next.

    I found the answer myself.  There was a GPO somewhere directing computers to a non existent machine from a previous installation of an oder server with an older SUS.  changed that and it was all back to normal.
