I am currently the only person who manages and approves updates in our WSUS environment for over 700 computers and 80 servers. I would like to train one of my staff members (a green systems admin) on how to approve/manager and handle Windows Updates for our environment.

Does anyone have any advice or recommendations for some "best practices" to show him. I would also like him to be in charge of restarting some of the lower priority servers, is there a good program or application to manage server maintenance windows?

Thanks!
