We peaked at 3 hours last month with installing a single Cumulative update patch during our Server downtime. That is unacceptable. We have server environments that are three or four dependencies deep. We can't afford to be down for that kind of time especially given we only have a 6 hour downtime window to patch over 1,000 servers in our datacenter. Also, the file size is much too large. Last month it clocked in a 1.37 GB!
We need Microsoft to find a way to reset this with Windows 2016 server the way they do with Win 10 versions (patch size gets "reset" to a smaller size with each version upgrade) Why can't Microsoft find a way to port that same functionality into Windows 2016?Anonymous supported this idea ·
