    you don't *need* to create groups, but, you can do so if it is helpful to your own style of grouping similar computers together, for deployment or reporting purposes.

  • Hi Basant,

    Wsus will only install  applicable updates to specific Os. Grouping is just ease of management,

  • while approving updates, if i approve the updates for 64 bit windows to 32 bit windows, do that client downloads the updates of 64 bit? i m confused with approving updates for the clients.
