We're looking for a simpler solution for controlling Windows updates on our 60 windows servers (some of which are Server 2016 which seem to have a mind of their own as to when they want to update themselves) .
As a new admin in my company, I'm working hard to learn lots of things but SCCM / ConfigMgr seems like a beast to learn.
The desktop guy uses it for the win10 desktop update (400 users in 6 locations). My boss doesn't want to use the same instance for servers because years ago, desktop updates were pushed to servers which trashed a bunch.
In my previous job, we used WSUS which seemed more manageable.
So, I'm looking for a simple solution for windows updates for servers without me needing to get a PHD in configmgr.
We're even open to 3rd party solutions if that would make it less painful.
I guess from a bandwidth perspective, downloading it once and updating from a local copy would be more efficient but since we just got a fatter internet connection, I'm even open to skipping that as a requirement if it would make it simpler.
Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.
