    How long do you wait...

    Rookie

      How long do you wait to patch servers after patch Tuesday? Do you schedule patching ASAP or wait a prescribed period of time to see if any problems surface within the patching community before proceeding?

       

      TIA

          Hi Troy. We have a schedule that we follow each month. We first patch our staging environment on the Thursday after patch Tuesday. Then our QA team validates that the patches did not break anything in our envionment. Then we push patches to our production environment on the second Saturday after patch Tuesday. This allows QA plenty of time to validate and approve all of the patches.
