I have two domain controllers installed on my network, one running Windows 2000 Server SP4 and the other Windows 2003 Server SP2.  I have installed Windows Software Update Services on the Windows 2003 Server.  I have approximately 20 computers in this network.  Could someone please outline the steps that are needed so that the updates are pushed to a test computer (Group A)  and once no problems have ocurerd then the updates and pushed to the remaining machines on the network which are in production (Group B).

Watch Question

You have to set a group policy on the machine that you want to get the updates. You can either do that in AD with a group policy or configure individule policies on each machine.



Could you kindly outline the steps for performing the Group Policy in AD.  I am new to Microsoft.
