I recently reconfigured our WSUS server because the last one crashed.  I gave it the same name and IP as the last WSUS server, synchronized all the updates and the computers are checking in but they are not reporting their status. I looked in the event log and it says that WSUS is working properly.

how long has it been?
what is the frequency check configured for?
if you go to one client, open elevated command prompt and do wuauclt /detectnow and give it a half hour or so, do you see that machine status updated?

The easiest way would be to reset their WSUS client ID's

net stop wuauserv
reg Delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v PingID /f
reg Delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v AccountDomainSid /f
reg Delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v SusClientId /f  
reg Delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v SusClientIDValidation /f
net start wuauserv
wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow
pause

I set up the server last Thursday. They are configured to check for updates every three hours.

I have also tried both of these commands and they are still not reporting. I can see them but they are showing no yet reported and the Installed/ Not Applicable are showing 0%.


When i go to the clients i am getting the attached error.

Thanks

This is the solution. Make sure that WSUS has the right certificates.
