Reality does get in the way along with accountants and precious people way up at the top elvis.

Some people have the luxury of an understanding business, others like me got 2 hours to derack 2 racks full of gear into 1 consolidated rack and make it pretty.

Sometimes you've just got to work with what your given and make it "as perfect as you can given the circumstances"

i guess in my mind "doing it wrong" implies a deliberate action as opposed to "doing it how it is able be done" due to the circumstances involved.

"Wrong" doesn't imply deliberate action at all. Things can become "wrong" for a enormous collection of reasons, including inaction, lack of resources, lack of vendor support, or a number of other external factors.

Again, don't let emotion cloud judgement. Strive for "right", even if it means doing it "wrong" for a while until things get better.

And "making things better" doesn't have to mean staying with the same vendor, either.

They aren't in AD. they are VDI gold images (Thy join the domain as part of the Pool provisioning process).
So they had the WSUS server set via reg file (without using client side targeting).
The WSUS Cleanup scripts that run automatigically prune old machines from WSUS... and because there was no updates last month, the VDI gold images weren't powered on, and were pruned.

When they were powered on (and Automatic Updates service was started), they came back into the "unassigned computers" (due to no Client Side Targetting) group, which has no approvals at all, hence, they were not finding any updates.

So with the Word 0-Day floating about, I thought it prudent to check if there were patches...

Some people's WSUS instances aren't syncing.

https://social.technet.microsoft.com...=winserverwsus

Current workaround is to disable the "Upgrades" category in your WSUS server and then it will sync...

Load from creator update? Hacked build infrastructure... who knows.

With the amount of press and currently state of exploits in the wild for this word thing, I think we'll be patching our desktop fleet earlier than normal, and crossing our fingers that nothing else is broken.

mine wouldn't sync for the first 5-6 odd goes now it is syncing. I'm guessing windows update servers were getting smashed.

final tally is 100 new updates

Also, Exchange 2007, Vista and probably some other stuff has reached EOL. If you're still on these platforms, you should probably quit.

As long as it's air-gapped and has all it's ports epoxy'd up.
