Windows Update on Windows Server 2016

Post by m.novelli » Feb 09, 2017 2:37 pm

Hi guys, I've noticed that Windows Update on Windows Server 2016 is quite different from Windows Server 2012 R2; is there any "best practice" to share to have both the Veeam Backup Server fully updated but avoiding any reboot during Veeam activity?

Actually I've set the "active working hours" from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM to let Veeam run smooth during the night, but I'm not really satisfied with this setup, since during the day I have running backups of Desktop PC with Veeam Endpoint

Any suggestion to share? Thanks a lot friends

we have set update to manual with sconfig.cmd. If you look at the current problems with 2016 it might be better to not have automatic updating for such a core system :-).

We install the updates manually 2-3 weeks after the patchday.
