Quality Assurance Improvements done on previous assignments:

  • Boot host before patches or major updates. Make sure system still boots and that major applications have not been modified into a non-starting state.
  • Check that a kernel can be compiled before patching (basic health check needed for any major update)
  • Run a patch consistency check prior to major work.
  • Use system health check before patching to insure pre update health.
