Requiring general inputs from the experiences of Network Admin about managing Patch, Updates, Hotfix etx and the schedule associated with them
Posted on 2011-03-25
I have been ask to list every/any patches, hotfixes, updates possible on any/every IT equipment (hw/sw) possible. Then to put in place a procedure where any/every Critical items would be apply within 48 hours, Urgent = 7 days and any/every other type of update of any kind be apply at a minimum interval of within 4 months.
I am the network admin of a company of 250 employees with 350 computers and about 30 servers plus about 50 switches and other network equipment.
Do any one of you have a politic concerning "updates" and if yes how to you manage them?
Thank your for the inputs.
