Recommended Patch Label Size and Intervals
I'm currently managaing about 350 systems using the K1000. I had some general Best Practices Questions for Patching and machine management. I currently patch once a month(use to be more often, but I had alot of pushback).
What is the recommended size per patch label group?
Currently I have 6 Labels with about 50 users in each group. They all get patched the same day(about an hour apart).
Should I start spreading the patching over multiple days?
I also have about 10 macs in our enviroment. Should I keep those machines in their own grouping?
Thank you for your time!

I use machine labels for patching. Depending on the patch label is how often I patch. Critical gets once every two weeks, while recommended gets once a month. Also laptops, and servers are on a different schedule. Laptops are more frequent while servers are more manual.
With 350 machines you should have no problem doing that many in one day.
Take a look at these sites. There's a ton of knowledge here.
