WSUS? Patchlink did me wrong!

7 02 2008

After struggling with Patchlink for a year, its time to move over to WSUS.  Patchlink has an ok web interface, but is very slim in the help department.  Many patches are listed as needing to be deployed, but no real guidance is given on what order they should go in, time considerations, or anything of that nature.  Blah.  Patchlink is also VERY picky about running on a server that has ANYTHING else running on it.  You pretty much have to dedicate a box just for patchlink.  I had to use the server for something else a few months back and never even installed the thing again.  Good riddance.  Here’s hoping that WSUS will work ok once I get everything virtualized.
