  • Hi All,
    Should I disable automatic update service in my server where I installed OCS 2007 R2?

  • That really depends on your corporate policy, if there is one.  Microsoft typically recommends enabling that but I personall don't ever allow server's to update themselves automatically.  It's usually best to do so manually.

  • I let the server download the updates and wait for a manual install.

    Case in point.  I just openned a thread where an update actually causes problems at a remote site.  If I had not done that manually and stuck around to make sure everything was still working after the update, then I'd have a mess on my hands.
