Patching Servers

By afruto ·
Ok guys here is the scenario.

I need to patch a bunch of servers that are going to be use to perform a disaster recovery exercise, these server are on a isolated network with not access to internet at all so I scanned the actual production servers with shavlik and downloaded all the missing patches per server and created a folder for each individual server then i created a cd.

The question is how can i applied all the patches at once on each individual server so i don't have to reboot after applying each patch.

Each patch has a switch that can be used to suppress reboot.
If you vbscript the installs of all patches, you can run them from the VBScript one right after the other. Using the appropriate switch, you tell each patch not to reboot.
Then at the end of your script force the reboot or do it manually when it is convenient.
