Great idea I was thinking the same. However I would suggest that the offset days is just a little less than a month. Why? Quite simple our environment has a lot of servers and we have DTAP in place where we apply patches x days after patch Tuesday for DT servers and xx days after patch Tuesday for AP servers. That way we have enough time to tackle any updates with regard to patching before applying these onto Production.
Currently to allow for this setup we use our own created PowerShell script that calculates these dates and creates non-recurring maintenance window for a year. Once this is implemented things will be much easier because we can just create a recurring maintenance windows without using complex scripts.Marcel Mulder supported this idea ·
