64 Windows updates, when was it last run?
Posted on 2014-02-22
Recently visited a site for hardware maintenance and when I shutdown the server via Windows it performed 64 windows updates before shutting down and all I could do was wait 4 hours for this to complete. OS was Windows 2003 Small Business Server. There was no option to install updates and shutdown on the menu, just shutdown.
1. Is it normal for Win 2003 / SBS to install updates before shutting down even though the option selected was just to shutdown?
2. Should it take 4 hours to apply 64 updates?
3. When approximately were updates last applied bearing in mind that there were 64 of them outstanding?
I have no access to site since the hardware/OS is now repaired so cannot look in the event viewer to answer questions, I do not think it was Win2003 R2, just the original version. Service Pack level unknown.
