If the client have duplicate SID, it’s make computers not showing in the wsus console.
The duplicate SID are came from Image base deployment .
If you generalize the image using sysprep this issue will not show.
You can run this bat in the client that not detected in WSUS console.

In my Last IT audit, I had to get MBSA data from all workstation and server.
And when doing it, I have problem like below picture :
To solved this, you just need to start remote registry services, and then do the scan again.
Set the remote registry to automatic if you want to remote registry run automatically.
Today I have a problem when I want to create new image using the existing image(old image) in citrix xen server.
When I run sysprep, I found an error message “A Fatal error occurred trying to sysprep the machine”
To solved this problem, I do a this workaround :
- Change registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Status\SysprepStatus to 7
- Change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform\SkipRearm to 1
- And then Delete the folder Panther.
- And then run sysprep again.
