Windows Update failing/Keep undoing

Hi Experts,

I have been doing domain migration, it seems to be working fine except certain workstation keep doing windows update and then undoing it.

there are no GPOs to prevent windows update and its not happening with all the workstations.

Anyone would have seen similar issues?

Many thanks in advance.

Any time I see a workstation doing an update and then undoing it occurs when either (a) the update is flawed or inappropriate for the workstation and needs to be hidden for a month or two; or (b) a driver update or prerequisite update (e.g. .NET Framework) has not been done. Then the new updates cannot proceed.

Update all drivers and all optional (recommended) Windows updates, restart and try again.

Thank John,

So you think its nothing to do with domain migration?
Yes, we have done domain migrations and that does not affect updates on our machines.

What????? a client/pc will not request an update that is inappropriate!!! period never.

VJ, what errors are you seeing in eventlog related to the update/s in question???
a client/pc will not request an update that is inappropriate!!! period never  <--- No so. I have a machine right here that Lenovo has supplied an incorrect video driver (my machine and two client machines). The update had to be hidden. HP Printers may have Null Fax driver updates. So what I suggested does happen and is worth watching for.
That's a flawed/corrupt/untested/third party *Driver* update issue, not an update meant for a different OS getting requested by a pc/client.
