Hello,

can someone say me how to force a client to report its status to the WSUS.
Some clients do not report their status but contact the server every 2 hours.

The GPO are correct an the Reg Keys are correct, too.

Thank you in advance.

You can force a client computer to check in with the WSUS server, but whether or not this reports their status I'm unsure. Both are entered at the command console:

Win2000 client: secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy /enforce
WinXP client: wuauclt /detectnow

Hope this helps.

Hi!

I wonder how you got the clients to report every 2 hours. The question maybe stupid, but I'm a new WSUS-user.

You'd set the check-in time with the WSUS server, as defined in the Group Policy, to 1 hour. Given the 20% variance that is part of the system anyway, this works out to roughly 1-2 hours between each check-in.
