My WSUS server says that KB2286198 is not needed for most of the computers I have. However a log file was generated on every computer I checked even though the patch wasn't needed. Do the clients attempt to install every approved patch, weather it needs to be installed or not and generated a log file for that attempt? The log file for KB2286198 has a number of fails listed, but the WSUS server report says the comptuer doesn't need the patch.
Perhaps I need ask the question another way. How does a Client determine it doesn't need a patch? What magic goes on behind the scenes to tell WSUS weather a machine needs or does not need a patch?
