    Is there a way one can move approvals from one Computer group to another? We
    need to create a new group for a couple of test servers and they should have
    the same patch approvals as another group. We do not want to add these new
    servers into an existing group since we want to change some rules afterwards
    to test a few things and as such do we need to keep them separate.

  2. Hi,

    You can use the WSUS API to copy update approvals from one
    WSUS group to another.

    See this post for details on how to create CopyApprovalsBetweenGroups.exe:

    Some additional notes about the utility:

    The utility is a command line based utility, you need to specify the
    "from" and "to" group names on the command line.

    If a group name contains spaces, you need to surround it with quotes,
    like this: "Test group".

    The naming of the groups is case sensitive so "Servers" is not equal
    to "servers".
