By using client-side targeting, WSUS can figure out how to assign computers to different groups by looking at Group Policy or Registry keys on each machine to automatically collect computers into a group. Client-side targeting saves you the trouble of manually adding computers, moving them around in groups, and generally resorting to tedious administrative methods.
To enable this, use Group Policy to configure the AU software on each computer. Enable the client-side targeting option by clicking the Enabled option, type the name of the group to which this computer should belong on the WSUS, and then click OK.
Keep in mind that you need to create the group on the WSUS server for this to take effect.
