Group Policy - Disable Windows Update on specific computer

Dear Sir,

We had a Active Directory 2008 and deployed a Windows update GPO on the root directory. We would like to disable some computers' Windows update. How can we do?

Thank you.

With regards,
Wataw

Put them in their own OU and create a gpo for Windows Update to your specifications.  If you have WSUS put them in their own group and don't approve updates for that group

Put those computers in a separate OU and Apply Block Inheritance (Right-click on the OU on GPMC and click on Block Inheritance)

If you cannot move them to an OU of their own, then you can still do above but ensure to use WMI filtering where computer name equals to what you want.
