Patching server is similar to workstation  patching .

  • Make sure you have correct subscription.
  • Time windows to restart server if required.

Server are critical so make sure you have the approval in place along with change window.

  • thanks, some servers run SQL,IIS and some doesnt , should i include MS patches for IIS , SQL also there are LYNC and SCCM server updates , how can i make sure these dont apply to servers?
    • You can create a new patch schedule to target any device labels (e.g. your servers) which include only patches in certain labels (e.g. all patches that aren't LYNC patches).

I understand this issue arises more often than not. but if you opt for automated patch management , it could reduce it considerable level.
