We have a number of 2012 R2 servers at AWS and the updates are super fast and since moving to 2016, they take 5 to 10 times longer to complete. It make no sense as to why the update process is so slow. Right now they are all done using the built-in Windows Update functions, although I would like to setup a WSUS for this setup. That is another task that will happen as needed. The updates though, cannot be taking 20-30 (or longer) minutes to complete.
Karl W-E shows it quite clearly in a recent post. Maybe Server 2019 is better, need to see if it is as good as 2012 R2.Stephen Kovacsiss supported this idea ·
