Mayoral, Michael Welcome to Microsoft Q & A Community Forum. Dynamic Scoping is an advanced capability of schedule patching that allows users to:
- Group machines based on criteria such as subscription, resource group, location, resource type, OS Type, and Tags. This becomes the definition of the scope.
- Associate the scope to a schedule/maintenance configuration to apply updates at scale as per a pre-defined scope.
The criteria will be evaluated at the scheduled run time, which will be the final list of machines that will be patched by the schedule. The machines evaluated during create or edit phase may differ from the group at schedule run time.
You don't need to add machines again using Add machines if they are already included within dynamic scope. Regarding your statement, "the machines also need to be manually added to the Resouces setting of the Maintenance Configuration for the maintenance to be Associated with the server", can you please share the azure document you were referring to ?
