Windows Update question

Hello,

I am running quite short on a huge server build that is arriving in 30 minutes. I have 14 Windows 2008 R2 servers to stand up with an internet connection not very good.

Is it possible to download the Windows Updates and put it on a USB drive, and then install updates to other servers through that? I'm trying to minimize the download time needed and get more production throughout the night.

Cool I think this will do it.

We got a fog server set up that we are going install this under and push out the updates. Our first idea is once we get the fog server up and running we will be able to create an image and boot up all the new machines with that and no patches required.

Thanks again
