I know something is really messed up when I get a 0x8024001D error or some other stupid hex number. At one time I liked Scott Hanselman's method of renaming the c:\windows\Software Distribution\Download to c:\windows\Software Distribution\ Click on "Disable Microsoft Update software and let me use Windows Update only" and then click on "Apply changes now." After the silly thing asks if you are sure (duh! It is simple and fast and has almost always worked for me.Someone on his blog actually asked if the extension was necessary. After nuking the old folder, run the update again and all is well but it takes a long time to go through that long download and update process. I have found that the easiest way to fix a Microsoft Update problem is to switch back to Windows Update from the "Change Setting" option on the left-side menu. I get the message saying "INFO: Successfully updated the Group membership tables for group..." but nothing appears in the console even after running a full collection membership update.It only seems to be a couple of groups where there is an issue. We have delta enabled to run every 5 minutes once, but only a full discovery is solving this. We have a WSUS server, and four computer groups (Alpha, Beta, Production, Workstations). Our patching process has us approve all "Not Approved" patches for the Alpha group, right after they're released by Microsoft.
( in here I will use service console to go ahead with this post ) click ok button after navigate to computers and select computers expand it, you will see there are two computer groups inside computers they are “all computers” and “unassigned computers” groups. now right click on all computers and select “Add computer Group” or go to action menu after selecting computers and select “Add computer Group” menu item.I have compared these groups against working groups and everything looks identical in their configuration. Has anyone seen this before or have any ideas what may be going on please? LOG i could see its processing, but there is no security group information in the machine properties. Open WSUS with privileged user account go to computers and expand it, inside the unassigned computers group you can see all the computers.when you are working for a company or when you are working handy it is easy to manage the updating process of the WSUS related computers if you can group them according to their departments or whatever factor.
