Our organization has about 100 remote sites that we are trying to manage. Each site is on its own domain and each site has stations on multiple subnets. We are trying to figure out what the best patching method will be as our connection to some sites is rather slow. Have looked at using preferred servers but from what I have read I think those only work per subnet. At these sites our actual server is on a separate subnet than our workstations so I am not sure if I would be able to utilize it that way. Have also looked at Stage and Repair tasks but have not worked with it much up til now so again just not sure if that best suits our needs. Just to note we do have a management gateway in place in case that may be something we could utilize in this situation.
Any suggestions on how you would handle this type of environment would be greatly appreciated.
