I am setting up several new servers and would like to get the experts opinions on whether I should let Windows Server 2003 automatically install updates or should I review them first? I beleive that the automatic option only installs critical updates right?
If I setup the servers to download the updates but let me choose if I want to intall them it doesn't let me pick the schedule. Is there a way to tell it when to download the upadtes in this configuration?
What about rebooting? If the updates require rebooting does it reboot the machine automatically or does it leave a message telling you that your servers need to be rebooted for the updates to take affect? Do updates to Windows Server 2003 ever even require rebooting?
I will usually do a couple posts in the forums, or I'll do a google for " New update released by Microsoft causes issues" or something to that effect. I don't get toooo crazy about it, for the most part,
Besides backup, any IT division should have a disaster recovery plan. You will find a few tips below relating to the development of such a plan and to what issues one should pay special attention in the course of backup planning.
