Member nameDescription
ClientClients specify the target group to which they belong.
ServerServers specify the target group to which the clients belong.

When the client registers with the WSUS server they can specify to which group they want to belong. If client-side targeting is enabled and the group exists, the client is added to the specified group. Otherwise, the client is added to the Unassigned Computers group and RequestedTargetGroupName is set to the request group name.
