Re: Moving machines to new WSUS Computer Group from old Group
I appreciate your reply.
1) What I mean by "follow" is since the new Computer Group I have shows Not
Approved (Inherited), how will WSUS know these machines' updates were pushed
to them when they were in their original Computer Group? (I know the Updates
will not uninstall).
2) In reference to your 2nd comment, I believe that I'll need to approve
Updates to the the new Computer Group all over again even though the Updates
were Approved to these machines in their original Computer group? (I surely
don't want to effect other Computer Groups.) This is hundreds of Updates.
