Hi Everyone,

I maintain a bunch of windows images for deployment.

The deployment process is rock solid but the odd thing is that after deployment allot of the time there are windows updates that are listed as missing.

This is not all windows updates just recent ones.

the process I do every month is to revert to snapshot - perform windows update - add any new software / changes etc - then snapshot and then sysprep the machines.

So in theory I shouldn't be missing any windows updates because I've also verified that there are no missing updates.

Yet after deployment specifically the newer ms os's they show missing updates - the odd thing is that it's not consistant for instance

- 3 servers deployed from the same template

- first serverĀ - 28 missing updates

- second server - 43 missing updates

- third server - 60+ missing updates

if anyone has any ideas let me know ok?
