Sccm client not updating
If clients are not configured for Automatic Update, you can locate the WUA redistributable file on MSDN and deploy it using Configuration Manager 2007 software distribution.Windows Update Agent (WUA) 3.0 or later must be installed on client computers for the client computer to successfully scan for software updates compliance.Today I had to compile a list of client logs to check for a friend of mine, and thought I’d share.These should get you 95% of the way on your troubleshooting (from the client side anyways).
If client computers are configured for Automatic Update, they should automatically update their Windows Update Agent from their Automatic Update source.
There is a faster way to update the ip of the machine via powershell or another tool?
A much easier way of running any scans on collections or individual devices is by using the Right-Click Tools by Now Micro.
You can also reference C:\Windows\Windows which is a windows native log and not to SCCM, but is updated with actions taken by SCCM in regards to updates.
I hope this has made your day, at least a little bit easier!
