I am planning to reboot a few servers at different time (during mid-night) but windows security updates(about 20 updates are from last year) have not been applied to them.

Should I run them all together or just only updates that have been successfully applied to other servers.

I had some issues with windows updates that OS did not work after windows updates so I had to remove the installed updates in order to fix the problems.

What would you guys do?

One server is running 2008 SP2 with Exchange Server 2007, I would not want this go down next morning due to the windows updates failure or cashes.
