I'm a developer who is in the fortunate position of having access to 5 newly booted virtual servers for use as our corporate Web Servers. In the past the Web Servers haven't been anyone's direct responsibility and so they have suffered no patching, no framework updates and no real maintenance.
To stop this from happening again I'm trying to step up and take some of the responsibility. Before I go to our services team and ask them I was hoping someone could give me some idea as to what it is I should be asking for.
I had in my head the idea of an active directory policy/group to which the 5 Web Servers could all be added that would reboot them once a night. I think I wanted them to reboot so that they could install any updates that windows so this was the underlying reason which I'm now not sure a simple reboot would handle.
So can you please suggest what policy I should ask to be created for the new web servers?
I don't have rights to create policies myself, I'm not even sure how they work (I seem to remember long lists of checkboxes) so can't do that much research which is why I came here, thanks in advance
