Hi Guys,
is ist possible in wsus package publisher to create a new computer group and assign it different computers from the default wsus group "All computers". For example:
  • All Computers (group)
    ++ Server with wsus role (group)
    +++ wsus01 (machine)
    +++ wsus02 (machine)
    +++ wsus03 (machine)
Now i need a goup in WPP with then name "Adobe Reader" and member of this group should be "wsus02" and "wsus03", not "wsus01".

Is there a possibility to map this example in wpp? With Metagroups i can create a new group in wpp but i can choose only groups from wsus and no machines.

Regrads,
Daniel

The purpose of MetaGroups is to facilitate the deployment of udpate.
For example :
You make a MetaGroup with All Test Computers group and you call it 'Test'.
You make a second MetaGroup with All Production Computers group and you call it 'Prod'.
You can then create a third MetaGroup, call 'Test + Prod'.

Once you received an update, you approve it to the 'Test4 MetaGroup, and all Test Group receive this update. Once you are satified of the update, you can approve it to the 'Test + Prod' MetaGroup.

Thats right... but in the wsus console a computer can only be an member of one group. That is my problem i have some programs that for different people where not in the same team. In this case i hope wpp can replace my manual installation.

No, a computer can belong to several Computer Group.

No, problem. Just put your groups separated with semicolons.
