    Microsoft's new Windows servicing model

    fcpsolaradmin

      "From October 2016 onwards, Windows will release a single Monthly Rollup that addresses both security issues and reliability issues in a single update. The Monthly Rollup will be published to Windows Update (WU), WSUS, SCCM, and the Microsoft Update Catalog. Each month’s rollup will supersede the previous month’s rollup, so there will always be only one update required for your Windows PCs to get current.”

      So how do you feel about Microsoft's latest change in the patching process? Personally, I like it. Our Nessus will show a lot less red

       

       

      I am glad they decided to keep .net out of the "main" Roll-up as these are usually the ones that causes issues for us.
