    Yes, both for Windows and Linux.
    Yes, uninstall KBs or any updates that are causing issues.
    Rollback to a previous state would be ideal.

    @koshy, We'd need this for both Linux and Windows obviously. Any update when will this be implemented? This is critical for us.

    This would be relevant to Windows for us.

    I think it would be fantastic if Update Management could be natively configured to, during the maint window, shut down the machine (or leave it in if the user desires), take a snapshot of it, turn it back on, patch it and rebooted as many times needed for patching to complete. Then, the snapshot could be configured to “expire” after a certain number of days, at which point, the service would auto delete it. I think this would take a way lot of anxiety from installing patches knowing that you have a Backup RIGHT before the patch was applied.

    Although backup policies should already exist, it’s unclear when and if that last backup was taken in relation to the patches. The backup and patching teams are not always the same and they aren’t always in sync.

    We are in a process to select a patch management solution in our hybrid cloud environment and we have seen this feature other tools we reviewed. This will be a great add-on to the feature list and would love to have for both linux and Windows.
