WSUS Clients not showing

I have WSUS 3.1.6001.65 on Windows Server 2003 SP2 - all clients are Windows XP pro sp2 or sp3

I have created a GP that governs all PC's on my domain to point to the WSUS server for updates. I have verified that it is working because clients are recieveing and downloading the updates from the WSUS server. The issue is, only about 25% of the clients register and show up in the WSUS console. Most of them are wireless laptops which I know are connecting because they are receiving updates from the server.

I set this up several weeks ago figuring I would give my clients enough time to "register"

Any idea why my clients are not hsowing up in WSUS?

Also if you used imaging on the clients, use the following script to handle duplicate sids
 
Save as fixwsus.cmd

 

%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop bits 

%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop wuauserv

 

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

reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v SusClientValidation /f

reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v LastWaitTimeout /f

reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v DetectionStartTime /f

reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v NextDetectionTime /f

Before they were imaged, we ran sysprep. Doesnt this clear the SID?

Would the script be ran on the clients or the server?

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

Do you know how I would convert this cmd script to a kix so I can have clients install it on login?

You can use the command "psexec \\* -c -f s- c:\fixwsus.cmd " <<<<this will run it on all machines in your domain
Or Psexec @c:\computerlist -c -f -s c:\fixwsus.cmd <<<< will only run on computers in the list
you can just give it the .bat extension and have it run in a startup script
