    Patching Windows Sp1 and post SP1 patches only

    Russ Todd

      Questions for everyone:


      I am planning a Windows 2008 R2 patching cycle to install SP1 and all patches that are available after SP1.

      The issue I see is that when I do a analysis of the servers today, the result I get are all patches that are pre-SP1 up to and including SP1. It would appear that I need to create two jobs, one that has just SP1 and then another for post SP1 Patches.


      Is this the best methodology? I don’t want to spend all the time installing pre-SP1 patches only to have them rolled up in SP1.

      If I have to use two jobs, is there a way to batch them together so that it will all happen automatically?
