I inherited a network with several servers running Windows Server 2003. They have not been updated for several years because my predecessor was concerned that updating Windows Server 2003 might render it useless in case there's a problem. Here are my questions:
- What is the best way to update the servers to that they are properly patched? I'm thinking in terms of strategy.
- Is there a free or low-cost software that I can install so that if the windows update didn't work, I can go back (or revert) to all the settings prior to the update?
- Should I do a System State backup each time prior to an update?
