GAH. I just found out my TMG 2010 is two service releases out of date.
I check the web and find SP1. But me not being trusting of a quick search, I then find there's an SP2. Hmmm, not good enough still, oh there's a SP2 RU1. I think I've found how deep this little rabbit hole goes... or do I.
Now here's the thing, I know the best way of keeping up with SR releases and updates is to either use automatic updates or to get RSS feeds from trusted community blogs. No way am I letting Windows update decide on what to install and SR's for individual products aren't always available in this way anyway. So I'm left with blogs. Ok, I look after well, I haven't enough fingers to count the number of Microsoft products I look after and I'm not going to subscribe and then keep up to date with all those blogs.
Is this a rant??? No there's a question.
How do you guys keep up? Is there a good all encompassing blog that gives you just useful posts?
Or is there a great wiki out there?
Or do you do what I've been doing up to now is just pick up snippets and expect it'll be fine, hell nobody other than me cares which service pack I'm on anyway, well until something goes wrong that is?
Work. I don't have (no of?) any local authority help in this department. But I've got about ten physical and 40 virtual servers to keep up to date and there's no way I can keep up to date as well as keep things running hence the question. BTW, I'm not just talking Windows, SQL, Exchange, Forefront, SCCM, SCOM etc
I have a folder in Google Reader with the RSS feeds of about 50 different product blogs I have to keep track of updates for.
That doesn't include the products that are managed by WSUS. If you're using WSUS (pretty sure you will be since you have SCCM) then check you have all of the products that you use ticked in the Products and Classifications screen, if they are available. There is a whole section for Forefront, including TMG.
