WSUS Trouble?

Sometimes when I build a new server it can take a few days for it to show up in WSUS or it may not even show up at all. If I’m having trouble I use this batch file. I only use this after the group policy settings have been created and the server is sitting in that OU. 99% of the time this fixes my issues with the server showing up in the WSUS console.

reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v AccountDomainSid /f
reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v PingID /f
reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v SusClientId /f
cls
gpupdate /force
@echo Triggering detection after resetting WSUS client identity

Looking for Cisco Visio Stencils?

It used to be very hard for me to find these links online so I wanted to post them so you (and myself…) have a simple place to always find them.

  • I use these for most of my generic diagrams. Logical and layout diagrams.

All-purpose Cisco Visio Stencils

  • These are good for physical layouts. You can place lines for inter-connectivity ports used by devices.
