WSUS and symetrically named workgroup machines
Posted on 2011-03-02
Hello Experts -
I've hit a couple brick walls with WSUS. My enviornment consists of several off domain workgroups, and thoes workgroups share uniquely named servers within them.
For a number of reasons; thoes workgroup server names cannot be changed. The problem I'm up against now is getting WSUS to reconize them all as unique machines. It will only keep one instance of the commonly named workgorup server listed in the console.
If I wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow on a particular machine, it will indeed populate in WSUS, but overrighting the other same-name server (they all have unique IP).
Any help here?
