When listener Mel Vargas first suggested the topic of patching, I was not sure this would work as a topic; however, the Equifax story had just developed and there are many other security related issues that could be prevented with patching. Match that with our guest, Robert Davis, who just happened to publish some articles on patching and I decided we needed to do this episode.
I should never have doubted this as topic. While we are a bit more protected in SQL Server than others, the security threat is still real and this is something everyone has to go through. Robert presents us with some interesting details on how he goes about patching and we think you will find the episode compelling.
The shownotes for today’s episode is found at http://sqldatapartners.com/2017/10/04/episode-112-keeping-up-with-patching/ and have fun on the SQL trail.
