I have a D/C with A/D and DNS runing, all is wokring correctl. I installed WSUS 3.0 with default settings, I have an umassing group and a group that I was able to create. I can't seem to be able to join any computer from the domain to the WSUS. I have all  the GP applied under GP edit for domain, I did a GPUpdate /force and I even restarted a few of the workstations, but notthing that I ahve done has enable me to join a computer to the WSUS. What I'm  missing? I have other GP with log in scripts and folder redi working and DNS and A/D are all working correcty. I hope the files below will have you help me.

I have been able to talk with my colleague who worked on the issue with Microsoft. It seems that we had this problem when we updated from WSUS 2.0 to 3.0.

The issue was around the IIS Site for WSUS that seem to haven't updated when the server has been updated. So the Microsoft tech deleted the site in the IIS and with some commands in an MS-DOS shell he recreated the IIS Site for the WSUS 3.0. He also worked on some permissions but I'm not quite sure if it was on the Site or in the WSUS config.

You may find some help on WSUS command line on google.

Here is some doc from Microsoft: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/2686bd2b-910a-479b-961e-cea2a20280241033.mspx?mfr=true

can you check the intranet location.
Also can you use client side targetting to see if it works.

Usually the computers appears themselves in the WSUS admin panel when they are able to fetch updates.

I know that there is an issue with WSUS 3.0 where clients were not reporting to the server and we had to open a ticket with microsoft to fix that issue but I dont remember the fix right now... I'll check at the office tomorrow.
