Windows updates require a reboot to apply, due to this, automatic updates are not enabled as standard as they can result in unexpected/extended downtime. It is the client's responsibility to ensure Windows update is run on a regular basis.
Running Windows Update
It is recommended you run Windows update at least once per month and that you run them attended rather than allowing them to be automatically applied.
If you would like our team to enable automatic updates you may request this via ticket, please note that automatic windows updates are not monitored so failed updates may result in extended downtime.
You may also enable automatic updates yourself, if you do this, please let us know the schedule so our monitoring team are aware.
Our support team can also run windows update upon request, we will check your server boots and has network connectivity after the windows updates have installed. You are responsible for testing any applications you may run on your server to ensure they are functioning as expected after the update. To request we run windows update please raise a support ticket.
Critical Security Patches
There may be occasions where a critical patch is released that addresses a serious vulnerability that has a high chance of exploitation and has none or limited mitigation against exploitation.
In those instances, we will contact you via support ticket to arrange patching of your server, however they may be also applied without prior authorisation from the client if deemed particularly urgent unless you server is self-managed.
What is deemed a critical patch is at our own discretion and we make no guarantees.
