we will use wsus for updating about 1500 PCs for the first time, we installed wsus and we want to group computers by network, i.e. computer in network 10.1.1.x should be moved to "head quarter" group which will be created. also computers in network 10.1.2.x should be moved to another group.

all i need is away to arrange computers by IP address to move them (manually or automaticaly) to the proper group.

only option i could think of straight off is to actually structure your AD relative to your addressing scheme and then use client side targeting to premade groups on the WSUS server with group policies on each OU

Dear Jay_Jay70
I was so busy in the last days, so I could not respond in a timely manar.

The question is:
I want to do a new structure to my AD relative to addressing scheme, and it is a stupid method if I do ping utility to every PC to know it's IP. Is there any software that can group PC's by subnet?

hmm not sure how well you can do it with most utilitities, but you could probably use something like angry IP scanner to scan for all IP's then just group them that way
