sql server 2012
Im doing a windows update on a sql server.
it has 1.5 gig of updates including service pack II for sql server.
what should I do to make this update as safe as possible?
should I stop the sql server then run the updates?
I was thinking of doing this to kill any active sql session connections.
is there a way to monitor and disconnect sessions to sql through a gui?
