    …after reading…/lab-management-guide-v3-update-is-available.aspx

    Question: Do you have a YouTube or Channel 9 of the VMST being used on page 31 of 66 “Virtual Machine Patching in a Small Environment” ?

  2. @LiveFromRaleigh, the team have not seen any video that shows how to use VMST. The best in that area is the HOLs on patching from v2 of the guide (see…/88019), perhaps that’s something you can review?
