When I set up the target for group policy settings of the WSUS, a GPO (group policy object) which is connected to an active directory container is used. In client side, this can be done by the usage of GPO objects added to the groups of computers. But, how can I enable client-side targeting?
Configuration And Enabling Of Client-side Targeting
An OU names workstations will be created in the domain controller. Then a computer of the client known as the client will be moved into the OU. Launch the console of WSUS by logging into the server of this.
Select the computers. A window will be opened below the general tab. In this tab select the user group or registry settings on computer and select apply followed by ok.
