WSUS on server 2012 (Hyper-V instance) unable to add clients via- Server-side (non GPO) targeting.

Newly deployed server, all current OS patches installed. Server-side targeting (under options|Computer set to "use the update services console".

I am able to create computer groups, but there is no option to "add a computer".

System is running Symantec Endpoint Protection w/ firewall. I've disabled SEP on both the WSUS server and a target system to rule out firewall issues. No luck.

I have a relatively small branch office that I want certain systems looking at the WSUS server without having to create a GPO.

Any suggestions? What am I missing? TechNet and MS documentation has not been helpful.

You would prepare a registry settings file and run a script of modify manually.
A simpler way is to apply GPO to some machines and copy settings over.
Or have a look at something like http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles-tutorials/windows-xp/Registry-Keys-Tweaking-Windows-Update-Part1.html

Clients are only added once they access a WSUS server according to their settings.
