How are you guys handling Server Software Updates?

Recommended Posts

Here's what I have in place currently.

Dedicated WSUS server that only downloads updates for servers. AD Groups labeled "SRVGRP1-8" which are tied to Group Policies for each that determine when or if the machines are rebooted automatically.

Maintenance windows seem to be a confusing issue and I know that "Server Groups" which was released as a pre-release feature in 1606 was supposed to help with that but I'd rather not tie myself to a pre-release feature. I'm on 1610 and wary of upgrading to 1702 due to all the issues I've read about.

I guess it boils down to whether it's worth the time spent to set this up in SCCM or leave it as is.

Anyone gone through similar?
