Provide Cluster Aware Updating functionality for normal Servers
CAU is a pretty handy tool for patching clusters. It would be great to have this automated and centralized patching functionality also for non clustered windows servers!
@Ned Pyle [MSFT] (Principal Program Manager, Windows Server) Not everyone uses WSUS. Having a tool like CUA for other would integrate well with third party or home grown patching orchestration tools.
+1 Amazing, I can't understand why this hasn't been been. It seems like it would be trivial considering how much more orchestration CUA has to do.

Personally I think it would be great for web farms. It would be nice also to be able to orchestrate IIS and SQL Server patching in a standard fashion instead of doing this via complex patch groups in sccm.
HI Christian. Can you explain this suggestion a bit further? Windows Servers have WSUS currently to patch them. Is the idea here for certain multi-server non-clustered workloads like IIS farms or NLB gated servers? Or maybe something else?
