Computers not moving to correct groups on WSUS upstream server

Recently our WSUS server crashed and we had to rebuild it. We have several replica downstream servers in branch offices all configured already to auto-populate the groups for each office. I had to recreate these groups and several of the downstream servers. Anyway, many of the downstream servers have synchronized correctly and the computers in the groups those downstream server control have put the computers back in their proper groups. About 15% of the computers are still sitting in the unassigned group under their respective downstream servers.

On some of the downstream servers I have changed them to allow me to move them into their groups and then changed it back to allow group policy to do it. I then manually synchronized several times to no avail. The rebuilt WSUS server has been in place for several days now yet nothing seems to be moving anymore.

Somewhat of a canned answer, but have you tried forcing a gpudate & reboot?

I did that several times on both the upstream server and downstream servers. To be honest, I simply took this opportunity to clean house. Of course many of the end user PCs that weren't moving had been decommissioned or removed from the network. Then after several days many of the computers checked in and moved themselves. We were left with 5 PCs that hadn't moved to their respective groups. I'm happy with that.
