To schedule the automatic download and installation of updates on the nodes of your clusters, click : Configure or modify Updating Run Profile.
The Configure Self-Updating Options Wizard is displayed.
As noted earlier, downloading and installing updates to cluster nodes requires the installation of a clustered "CAU" role.
To install it, simply check the box next to "Add the CAU clustered role with self-updating mode enabled, to this cluster" and click Next.
You can schedule the download and installation of updates :
Select the run profile created previously using the Browse button.
In our case, we named it : ClusterUpdatesParameters.xml
Note : this file is located by default in the "C:\Windows\System32" folder.
Your new settings are displayed. Click Next.
By default, only important updates will be downloaded.
If you also want to include the recommended updates, then check the "Give me recommended updates the same way that I receive important updates" box.
Note : for this tutorial, we will not download the recommended updates for the process to be shorter (although it lasted a few hours anyway). Nevertheless, in production, it can be interesting to install them too.
Confirm this configuration by clicking Apply.
As previously explained, a cluster role is required to install cluster-aware updates.
So, the wizard automatically installs this role.
After the role is installed, click Close.
To download and install the updates now (instead of waiting for this to happen through the newly configured schedule), you can click "Apply updates to this cluster".
The Clustered-Aware Updating Wizard is displayed.
If you selected your run profile when scheduling the update process, your new run profile should already be selected here.
If it isn't, click Browse and select it.
As before, you have the option to include or not the recommended updates.
Click : Update.
The wizard checks the status of the update run.
And if all goes well, the update of the cluster nodes will start.
On the main screen, you will see that Windows Server is currently looking for updates.
