Patching Best Practices

  • Anybody deploying patches to a larger number of clients? Just curious what everyone is doing for Best Practice.

    How often and when are you scanning?

    Are you downloading directly or from deployment points?

    How many clients do you have per Machine Collection/how many clients do you deploy to in a night?

    We've got about 900 to 1000 clients now and it's becoming a challenge to balance them all.

    We currently scan every 3 days between 6pm and 6am. Automatic updates are scheduled to run between 12pm and 4am with about 100-150 clients per Machine collections. Right now, we're having everyone pull directly from the Internet.

    If anyone wants to post what they're doing this might be a useful dialog for everybody.
