Fully Automated Patching - Trust No One

Description:
Patching is too important to leave in the hands of us fickle humans. We're just not that good at being boring and repetitive. In this session we'll talk about the ups and downs of fully automating your patching process. Come with skepticism and leave with a slightly more open mind about letting the machines run your life for you.

What you will learn:
  • Why humans are not to be trusted
  • How to get there iteratively
  • How to come to love the ADR

Build a Highly Resilient Software Update/WSUS Infrastructure

Description:
Everybody patches, and nowadays there is a lot of overhead to keep WSUS healthy and patches rolling. At large scale, your WSUS infrastructure can be even more unruly. In this session, learn how to build out the infrastructure, monitor for failures, and configure your environment to keep things running smoothly in the event of scan or sync failures. This session will cover all the bases!

What you will learn:
  • Maximize WSUS, SQL, and IIS for large software update catalogs and large client counts
  • Put a process in place when failures occur to limit the backlog
  • Monitor WSUS scans and syncs to catch issues before the backlog gets too big
