I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The "unassigned" group shows you any computers reporting to WSUS that are not part of any other groups.

Say you have a group called "workstations", and another called "servers" - and you have "host a", "host b" and "host c". "host a" is assigned to "workstations", "host b" is assigned to "servers" and "host c" not assigned to either. "host c" would then appear in the unassigned group, while all 3 hosts would appear in "all computers". "host a" and "host b" are assigned, thus they would appear in the groups they are assigned to, as well as "all computers", but obviously not "unassigned".

I hope that helps a bit?
