I have some OU groups in active directory for diffrent types of operating systems in our network. Upon coming to this company there was a OU for vista and windows 7 workstations. I created an OU for windows 7 64bit and added workstations to that group. I went into group policy management on the DC and added a security group called Windows 7 64bit that has all my win 7 64 bit work stations to the WSUS group policy. Basically I copied the same settings from the vista and win 7 32bit groups. However the windows 7 64bit group will not get their updates from the WSUS server and instead continue to go to the internet for them. Any suggestions? Do i need to look at the WSUS server for some additional configuration?
