WSUS - Computers not reporting in

I setup a new WSUS server at one of our sites because it was killing our bandwidth at our main site. I setup the server locally and changed them over to the new WSUS server. The machines are showing up in the correct Workstations group but they are not reporting in.

I am able to get to the server and tried the below and its working.

To troubleshoot client connectivity
Open a command window.
Contact the WSUS server: pingWSUSServerName
Contact the WSUS HTTP server. Open Internet Explorer and in the Address bar type: http://WSUSServerName:portNumber where WSUSServerName is the name of the WSUS server, and portNumber is the port that has been configured for it (for example, 80 for HTTP, 443 for SSL, and 8530 for a custom port).
Verify the existence of the self-update tree. In an Internet Explorer Address bar type http://WSUSServerName/selfupdate/wuident.cab
If the WSUS server is functioning properly, you should see a File Download window asking you whether to open or save the file. Close the window.

I haven't approved any updates yet. Was waiting for the machines to report in. Do I have to have some updates approved for them to report in?

If you are using server 2008 and WSUS you most likely have WSUS on the custom port 8530

this needs to be added to your GPO config

By default computers report into WSUS every 22 hours, so if this is a recent change you only need to be patient.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
