Automatically patching Exchange Server with minimal downtime using WSUS 3.0 ?

Last Modified: 2016-02-13
Hi All,

How can I perform automated Exchange Server 2010 patching with just using WSUS 3.0 ?

Scope: I just need to deploy Windows Update to all of my Exchange Servers after hours without reboot every 2 monthly, but I just have WSUS 3.0 configured in my AD domain, no SCCM.

How can I schedule and configure it so that when the updates applied after hours, the Exchange Server email flow still works without problem.

Or does the Exchange Server 2010 must be manually patched cannot be automated ?
