Pointing clients to specific WSUS repository?

    I have a remote site with a remote installation of WSUS 2.0. I am trying to
    figure out how to configure AD so that the clients there pull their updates
    from the local repository (they're still pulling from our home office server).
    Anyway, there's an OU specific for these people, but for the life of me, I
    can't figure out how to go in and set AD to do this. Is there a KB article
    or something to assist?

    Many thanks,

    you could configure a GPO which had the Computer Configuration\Administrative
    templates\Windows Components\Windows Update\Specifies an intranet Microsoft
    Update Service Location configured.
    But that setting will be processed only on computers in the OU(s) that the
    GPO is linked to. Assuming the computers you want to point at the WSUS server
    are in that OU, then yes you could do this. You simply need to configure a
    GPO and link to the OU where the computers you want to point at the remote
    WSUS. Note this is a computer setting and will not be processed by users.
    I.e. you link it to where the computer objects are in AD. If you have
    computers in a container/OU which have a mixture of remote and non-remote
    then you will have to security filter the policy.
