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?
Push sp1 out, reboot, then run an auto-remediate paj all in a batch job
