When I add Windows Clients (fresh installs but with all updates needed) to SBS via the http://connect functionality I am getting messages an UNKNOWN update status in the SBS console under computers for all XP clients but one (says OK). A quick look at the WSUS shows they are not listed there, but one and it's not the one listed in SBS!

All Windows 7 systems are doing just fine including recent installs. I've removed the clients from the domain and re-added them with the same results.

Any idea what is going on here and how to correct it?

SBS sure is requiring a lot of special attention for an out of the box solution for our small business!

EDIT: Looks like I'll answer my own question here...the concern has to do with cloned clients having the same ID for WSUS. Once that issue is solved (clear ID from register) then the WSUS can reattach, can take 22 hours or a reboot for WSUS to see them.
