    I have problem with SCE 2007 and just wander if somebody could help me.

    Last weekend I installed patches on my network on 10 servers. I also updated some Managements packs (Windows Server MP and Active Directory MP). Today I found when I go to Computers Groups and click on All Computers I can see only 7 machines and 3 are missing. However it shows me “All Computers (10)”. When I create new Computer Group I’m able to see all 10 computers on the list but 3 problematic are without “Operating System Version” and “Computer Model” and new group don’t show them.

    I’ve check agent Managed Agents status and all 10 are healthy. I also removed agent and installed it again, restarted for one of problematic servers but still can’t see it in the group.

    Could you advice me please?

    Another thing is I installed long time ago some MPs and now I would like to delete all Management Packs which are not necessary. I just wonder if somebody could give me maybe example of list like that please.

    Thank you.


    Ok, I’ve seen this. Actually today as I spent a few hours finally to figure it out… There’s a couple of things that come to mind with this but I’m of the belief that your 3 machines are probably clones of another machine that live in some sort of a virtualized environment AND you didn’t sysprep the boxes. If this sounds like you, you’re walking the same road I did. How you fix it is you’ll need to do the following…

    Log on to each one of the clients (one at a time) and copy this file into a registry file .REG. Run it…

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




    This will erase the SUS client ID on the system. After that, do the following:

    net stop “automatic updates”

    net start “automatic updates”

    wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow

    This will clean it up. Give it about 5 minutes to set / resync and you should be good to go. I got all my machines to behave again and I’m working… Good luck. A question I could answer!!! Hey, what do ya know!
