Updates installing order
Windows Server 2003, SP2, File server role.

I am planning to install updates (and restart) to the the file server.

It is some time I don't install them because of high availability
issue, so I have many updates to install.

What I want to do, is to install 4, 5 updates a time and collect
information after each restart to see potential problems and fix them
without a "one-bombing-updates-install" that sometimes produce a real
unpredictable scenario.

How can I safely deselect some updates and install only few of them a
time ? Do I have to start deselect them from the top or the bottom ?

In short, which is the order of the updates installation ?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks for help.

That's what crossposting means: A reply is posted in both newsgroups.

Probably unnecessary. At least, I've never had any issues with installing all
available updates simultaneously to a new machine. YMMV.

It doesn't matter.

Certain major updates, such as service packs, new Internet Explorer versions,
and so on, should be installed separately from any other updates. (In fact I'd
recommend installing such updates manually rather than via Windows Update, and
make sure you reboot both before and after installation.)

Harry.
