Final Thoughts


February 3, 2022
Screen presentations were good, but the fonts were too small to read so I had to bring up my own WSUS screens so I could see what was being presented/discussed. Sound volume wasn't consistent between sections, but that was minor. Overall, good information. I've been managing a WSUS with about 400 systems for over 4 years so had a pretty good background before I took this course, and this confirmed what I already knew. Using RSOP to verify the correct 'pointer' to WSUS was new to me. That in itself was worth the cost of the course.
