I configuring a new WSUS server 2008r2 WSUS version 3.2.7600.226. In options/computers I have selected to "Use Group policy or reg settings on computer". I assumed that it would stucture WSUS/computers in the structure of my AD OU groups but it didnt they were brought in as unassigned computers and none of my AD OU's sturcture came in. Have I misunderstood how this should work or is something wrong?

    Accepted Solution

    create the group in WSUS
    if you have the GPO client-side targeting group called Marketing then create a group in WSUS called Marketing and the systems will be placed in there automatically
    it doesn't go by the AD OU structure but by client-side targeting in the GPO

    Thanks for the information, if that the case I will probably just bring them in WSUS and create the groups for the PC's/servers.
