I want to start with a WSUS Pilot group and approve all necessary patches for them - is there a fast method to allow me to get all of those patches approved.  Some machines has not been patches in 9 months or longer.

Thanks,
Mark

you may find it easier to setup groups for user systems and servers.

once you click to approve you will be asked what group to apply them to, i would choose your LAN users, and only add your pilot group in here.  The rest of your users should remain in the Unassigned Computers group.  once your test is done, you can move all the user systems into the LAN group and they will get the patches deployed as the pilot group did.

having a servers group will keep the server related patches away from the user systems, makes it easier to manage.  also remember to update your GPO to set all the options required for pushing out updates, how often, what time etc....
