Hello Experts,

 I am having WSUS Lab , where I am practicing the WSUS related stuff.

Below is my lab configuration

1 - Windows server 2008 (DC/WSUS/DNS)

2 , Windows server 2008 Client

3. WIndows server 2003 Client

 I have created a group policy and applied to the client as well as to my DC.

GPO seems to be applying fine , I have enabled the Client sided targeting as well.

When I check the WIndowsupdate.log file I am able to see the Target Group as well other WSUS server and its status.

BUt When I go to my WSUS console , ALl the comptuers are listed in ALL COmputers and Unassinged comptuer groups not in the LAB( Which is my computer client sided target group).

Attached is the windowsupdate.log fie.

I am not sure what I am missing? Can anyone help me with this?

    Accepted Solution

    Do you have the Target Groups Spelled exactly the same(Including any spacing) in both your GPO and WSUS console???

    Within the WSUS console did you use the setting "Use the update services console" or "Use group policy or registry settings on computers" ???
