Hi, I want to setup various computers with Windows 10 Enterprise and manage them with Windows Server 2022. I want to use Unified Writer Filter and use WSUS in Windows server to distribute updates. I want to know if to know if I can enable UWF servicing to the client PCs remotely from Windows Server or I have to enable it in every PC manually.

Thank you.

    Hello You can remotely enable UWF on Windows 10 computers from Windows Server 2022. Method 1: Using PowerShell

    1. Open PowerShell as Administrator on Windows Server 2022.
    2. Use the Invoke-Command command combined with the computer name or IP address to remotely execute a script that enables the UWF settings.
    3. Consider using Group Policy or another centralized management tool to automate the process if needed, ensuring that the script runs on the desired computers.
    4. Before deploying to a larger environment, test the remote configuration process thoroughly on a small number of computers to ensure it works as expected. Method 2: Using Group Policy Editor
    5. Install and configure Active Directory Domain Services on Windows Server 2022.
    6. Create a domain and add Windows 10 computers to that domain.
    7. Open the Group Policy Editor on Windows Server 2022 and create a new Group Policy Object (GPO).
    8. Apply the GPO to the Windows 10 computers that require UWF enabled.
    9. Navigate to "Computer Configuration" -> "Administrative Templates" -> "System" in the Group Policy Object, and edit the "Unified Writer Filter" settings to enable it.
    10. Save and apply the Group Policy changes.
    11. As with the first method, it is recommended to test before implementation to ensure everything works as expected.
