During our current implementation, we ran into an issue where there were Service Stack updates required on some systems before they could accurately report outstanding patches/apply patches.
An update to the SSU on the given systems proved to solve the discrepancies, but leaves us with an interesting gap to fill…
How can we maintain (preferably automate) updated SSU on our endpoints? Should this be automation attached as a ‘pre-step’ that needs to be executed before our scheduled patch windows? Or can this be rolled out as a daily check policy that will auto-execute whenever a new update becomes relevant (since this doesn’t require a reboot, but will our customers align)?
How are you handling Service Stack updates?
