Hi, Im a new Network Admin at my company. One of my new tasks is to get a handle on our servers backup strategy, we have a WSUS server, and when I looked at the update status for our servers, I found that none of them have had any MS updates installed in a very long time. what im looking for is some advice on how/when to install updates to our servers. More or less some best practice advice on how to actually install the updates, and how to choose which updates are needed and which I dont have to install. Im new to this task, so any advice would be great!
thanks in advance.
