Hi Team,

I am running exchange server 2013  on windows server 2012 R2,i have lots of windows update pending to be installed and even the CU is quite old,i wanted to upgrade both windows and CU update.

is the any preference or good practice to apply windows update prior to CU update or vice versa? and also i wanted to know do i need to take the mailbox server on maintenance mode for updating windows patches.
