How long should it take to update and patch Windows 2008 server?
Posted on 2009-07-08
I have a possibly strange question regarding Windows 2008 server patching.
I have 4 web servers serving the same site, 3 public facing (load balanced) and one dev/test that need monthly patching/updating.
I plan to patch, update the Development server first, then test the application throughly before patching and updating the 3 live servers.
I was wondering if you could give me an idea on how long it would take (on average) to patch and update the one server every month, I can estimate testing the application time but as 2008 is new I'm not sure on the frequency or volume of updates.
Ask and tell away.
