If you want to update Windows computers with Microsoft's patch management solution, WSUS, you have to add them to your WSUS infrastructure. In an Active Directory network, this can be done through Group Policy (Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update). To add workgroup computers to WSUS, you have to set the corresponding Registry settings manually. Microsoft's free WSUS ClientManager for Workgroups helps you with this task.
The GUI tool allows you to point a specific client to a WSUS server and add it to a WSUS group. You can also configure update frequency and boot delay, enable auto install for mirror updates, disable reboot for logged-in users, and allow non-admins to install updates.
Once you have configured your WSUS settings, you have to click "Activate WSUS." The WSUS ClientManager will write the settings to the Registry. It will also create a REG file with the corresponding settings. To add multiple workgroup computers to your WSUS server, you only have to run this REG file on each PC.
You can also use the WSUS ClientManager to remove Windows PCs from a WSUS environment. The tool will also create the corresponding REG file for this task.
