  18. 18. Lab Scenario <ul><li>Contoso, Ltd., has several virtual machines that it is storing in the VMM library, and they are using them as hot spares for production machines. The development team periodically uses some of these machines for testing. Keeping computers up to date with the latest updates and patches it critical, so they company wants to implement a solution that will keep offline virtual machines updated. They are using WSUS as the update management solution for their online computers. You are the virtual administrator, and you want to implement the Offline Virtual Machine Servicing Tool to address these requirements. </li></ul>
