HEIDEN TECH Windows Patch Policy
WHEN: 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.
TIME: Patching window is from 1:00am to 4:00am.
HOW: Patches are handled via the Patch Manager module within the HTS remote monitoring and management software known as ConnectWise Automate.
Server Reboot Policy:
Servers are set to Maintenance Mode between the hours of 1:00am and 5:00am during the patching window.
Servers are set to “auto-reboot” following the successful installation of Windows patches.
Workstation Reboot Policy:
Workstations will not auto-reboot following the successful installation of Windows patches unless no user is logged into the PC. However, ConnectWise Automate will alert the user that a reboot needs to be performed to complete the patch installation.
If the user declines the original reboot request, they will be re-prompted every 120 minutes to reboot. Users will only be allowed to suppress the reboot for up to 12 hours.
Once the 12-hour threshold is reached, ConnectWise Automate will notify the user that their PC will be rebooted in 600 seconds. The user will no longer have the option to suppress the reboot and will need to save all work and prepare for the PC to reboot.
Day-time Patching (Workstations Only):
In addition to the patching window on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, Windows “day-time” patching is also enabled for all workstations. This allows for any PCs that were powered off during the patch window to still receive and install the Windows patches.
"Day-time" patching could have impact on a user's PC's performance while the PC is performing the patching. It is always best to leave all PCs on overnight the 1st and 3rd Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. This way the PCs can patch during the patch window and not during the day. This will help mitigate performance impact.
