Should I let Windows Server 2003 do automatic updates or should I review them first?
Posted on 2006-06-21
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?
Thanks for you help,
