If you are like me and don’t want to do them on actual patch Tuesday (not that Microsoft ever had any issues with their patches, right? ) you might miss an option in ConfigMgr to create the MW’s with an offset based on patch Tuesday. The reason you might want this is that sometimes the second Wednesday comes before the second Tuesday of the month.

Here is a new post by guest blogger Daniel Olsson @danielolsson100 covering a quite exciting network feature in Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
