Applying Patches and Updates

Patches occur to fix bugs that were discovered only after a certain condition set was discovered to cause the issue, or to correct a challenge created when another part of the network has changes. For example, many perfectly fine NICs do not operate properly with computers that run the new 100 MHz FSB (Front Side Bus) motherboards. This may require a Flash BIOS upgrade.

Save your juice, the sequel

You can frequently find troubleshooting tips on the vendor’s web site.

Test any changes on a test bench before installing in a ‘live’ environment.

Check release notes before installing any change.

Laptops and other specialized equipment may need special attention.
