In the Update section of both my default Detail and Summary Network Report under "Computers that are missing updates" it is showing computers that have been removed from my network. They are no longer listed in my SBS Console. Is there someplace else that they need to be removed?

If they really are gone/decommissioned, they should be deleted from Active Directory. If you are hesitant if they are gone or just temporarily off the network, do not delete them.

I just checked Active Directory Users and Computers and they are not listed. Anyplace else I can check?

Did you search for computers -- not users? It's a common mistake.

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

Yep. I even double-checked to make sure they weren't hidden under a different category. My computer names include the date of install (i.e., SysAdmin0210) so they are easy to distinguish from user names.

You need to remove the old computers from WSUS to stop WSUS reporting on them.

Please open up WSUS:

Start> Programs> Administrative Tools> Windows Server Update Services.

Expand Your Server> Computers> All Computers.

Select the relevant computer that is no onger part of your network in the middle Windows and then select Delete from the Actions Pane.

Repeat if necessary and then close WSUS.

Go Back to the Windows SBS Console and refresh the Updates screen - it should be happier now.
