Windows 10 Computers Showing As Windows Vista
On Server 2012R2 WSUS
In the Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) management panel, you might notice your Windows 10 computers are showing up as Windows Vista computers. This is caused by the system not properly knowing how to read the version number of the later O/S. The fix is fairly simple, simply download the hotfix from Microsoft. Apply the hotfix on your WSUS server and either restart the WSUS services or restart the server. Once restarted, you’ll see the Windows 10 computers are properly identified. Note this fix is the for the 2012 and 2012R2 versions of WSUS. This fix does not apply to Windows Server 2008 or 2008R2.
