Virtual lab for automated Windows updates testing

Post by alesovodvojce » Apr 29, 2019 9:25 am

With every patch Tuesday it is wise to test the updates of Microsoft Windows servers before any bad update could make the Windows server inaccessible on production.
In virtual lab it would be easy to spinoff the VMs from backup with Surebackup job and prior testing the availability of their services, install windows updates+reboot them.

While this can be done manually, it also poses an opportunity for automation.
Any ideas how to do that?

@rajesh.r988 my problem is different, not a custom report format, but tweaking virtual lab process by adding custom automation in between its two phases
