WSUS indicates KB980195 needs to be installed but.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a situation where some servers show that this update KB980195 is installed and it shows the installed on date on the individual server but when I look at the WSUS server where these servers report it the update shows up as Approved for Install with a Status of Not Installed.

    The WSUS servers are VMware servers and there is a mix of VMs, Rack mounts and Blade servers. All of the servers are running a mix of Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise, and Windows Server 2003 Web edition. The WSUS servers were built in 2007 on Windows Server 2003. The client servers were either built, cloned or upgraded to Windows Server 2003 prior to the end-of-life for Windows 2000 in June 2010. There are no issues with communication with the servers checking in to WSUS at this point.

    Can someone explain why this is so?  I also need to know how to correct the problem.
