WSUS reports not accurate

When I run a report on specific computer for installed patches, says patch KB975254 is
Approval - Install
Status - Not Applicable

Although if i look under server Add/remove i see the patch installed fine.

Any suggestions/>?

Installed/Not Applicable means the update is not applicable to or required by that computer. When referring to the status for a computer group, the Installed/Not Applicable column displays the number of computers in the group for which the update is not applicable or not required.

As a guess, reading the known issues with that update:

"Known issues with this security update
You can install the security update on a computer that is not running an affected version of FTP. When you do this, FTP is not installed on the computer. However, if the FTP service is installed on the computer in the future, Windows Update will reoffer the update, and you will have to install the update on the computer."

Is there any chance that the update was installed on the server, and the FTP service was installed later?

Is the server running FTP?  Would make perfect sense if the server does NOT have FTP installed... since the patch only applies to the FTP Service (hence, "Status - not applicable").  But this patch can be installed on a system on which it is not required.

Thanks for explanation


The server is not running FTP service, not installed.
Only IIS WWW,

Trustkeeper keeps failing saying we not up to date, although all patches are applied.
