Windows Validation through WSUS or GPO RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work in a large environment where we are constantly getting new Windows XP Pro pc's.  When we get them we join them to the domain add the computers to the appropriate groups so WSUS can keep them updated.  We have been noticing that the new PC's we deploy aren't showing up in the WSUS console.  I found out that inorder for the computer to show up in the WSUS console WGA needs to be ran agaist the MU site.  Is there anyway to have WSUS push out WGA to validate each computer or is there a way to download the WGA into an MSI file and be pushed out via Group Policy thus then validating.  If anyone knows a way of doing this please respond to this as to have to log on locally to each comptuer and validate would take a very long time.  Any response would be appreciated.
