    I have for several days now been trying to work on resolving this
    issue. I dont know what is causing it but its weird.

    I installed a WSUS server and created OU'S to correspond to the groups
    on the WSUS server, now most of the servers are showing up in the WSUS
    groups but there are about 30 of the servers which are virtual servers
    that are not taking the correct policies. When I run GPRESULT /Z I
    get " The user "-admin" does not have RSOP data." Now Im an
    enterprise admin.

    Also I know that some of the virtual servers have an issue that if the
    SId'S were not deleted and changed correctly the servers will not show
    up on the WSUS server groups. I did this to a lot of the server which
    fixed the problem but the 30 servers I did the same in did not work.

    I check the registry settings on the servers that are not showing up
    on the WSUS groups and they show that they are suppossed to get the
    patches from the WSUS server and the OU that corresponds to the WSUS
    group. they show up on the OU in the Domain but not on the WSUS

    I just find it weird that the server is looking for the GPT.INI file
    in another domain controller from an upper level domain.

    is there a way to change this on the servers that are experiencing
    this issue ?
    the two DNS servers im pointing to are the two correct servers.
    I removed the server from the domain and added it back twice.

    I have searched the web for a solution and microsoft is no help, their
    searching options are the worse.
