Hello,

I setup the WSUS on Windows 2012 R2 and created the group policy however I can't seem to get the computers to showup in WSUS, I have included as much screenshot as I can.

Thank you,

Can you show us your settings in the GPO for the update server address?  Also, when you installed WSUS, what port did you specify?  How old are the clients - updates wise?  If the client and the WSUS are not somewhat close on update levels, they can have a difficult time communicating.

Which setting do you want to see any specific one?

To be honest I don't remember what port I used cause I added the role a while ago! How can I check it now?

All of the clients are up to date, they were updated manually.

a bit confused here
yes, i understand 8530 is the default port but if the GPO didn't specify the port, windows update would have thrown an error that it couldn't contact the server to check for updates.  it wouldn't have said there are no updates available as if it was working

Without adding the port in the GPO the computers wouldn't get added in the wsus.
