What are best practices for patching Windows cluster based servers, i.e. File Server, SQL, Exchange, etc?
Posted on 2015-02-22
I need to know that how most of the bigger organizations patch their Windows cluster based servers like file server, SQL or Exchange.
We have SCCM 2012 R2 and patch our environment in phases. We have an effective procedure except Windows cluster because you cannot patch and restart them automatically via SCCM due to obvious reasons and Microsoft recommendations.
Now if we manually patch these servers in night, it requires lot of our Sys admin's time and then he will has to take comp time too.
Can someone suggest me in this regard?
