Wsus not updating windows 7 clients

But the thing is - I don't think it's the server, because the client PCs I have set up AFTER the new server was installed are all working, but the older clients are the onse that aren't reporting.

So it has got to be something with the clients, right?

I recently installed a new WSUS server and there are a few clients reporting but most are not.

The new server has a different name, but I updated the GPO to reflect the new server name but the existing clients are not reporting.

The new server is a 64-bit 2008 R2 server and the old one was a 32-bit 2008 server, but the clients don't care about that, do they?

The new clients that work correctly are all 64-bit, but some of the older clients that are not working are 64-bit and some are 32-bit.

I checked the registry of the old and new clients to make sure the new server name was present in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Update (and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Update on the 64-bit machines) and the new server name was there on both the old and new clients, so it looks like the gpo is being processed.

All the clients are Windows 7 except for a scant few Vista and XP machines... So in summary, the WSUS server says the clients have not yet reported on all clients that were installed before the server was changed.

If you try to run Windows Update on the clients it fails with an error code of 800B0001.
