Scenario 5: Using an Application and Management role server in a Testing Lab

A typical example of this scenario is deploying functionally identical Patch Manager servers in a production and testing environment. Deploy an additional Patch Manager server with both the Application and Management roles to test packages before you deploy them. This architecture allows you to isolate the testing environment completely from the production environment.

In this example, define a separate management group for the resources in the test environment. These resources should include the subdomain or workgroup for the environment, along with a dedicated WSUS server.

Additional Application and Management Role Servers for Testing


A similar example would be to use the additional server for a special business or perimeter network (DMZ).
