I have been tasked to patch the AVD hostpool for my company. What is the recommended way forward and best practices to achieve this? The route that I have chosen is to patch the base image and redeploy a new hostpool, but I am not too sure if there are any roadblocks to this.

    Hi @Bryan Brandon BEZEAZU-UH ,

    deploying a new hostpool based on an updated/patched image is one good option.
    Another option might be using "SCCM/ConfigManager/Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager" or WSUS to patch the existing VMs.
