Windows 2019 server updates

I have many Windows 2019 servers and use them via RDP. When logged in to a server, should I manually update them? As in, go to search - updates and update the servers? Is this necessary or can I do it somewhere central?

The simpler solution may be to just turn on automatic updating. If you wanted more precise control of updating you could also stand up your own WSUS server.

Just checking if there's any progress or updates?

Hello @Admin-4080

It is recommended that you use the following PowerShell command instead of "clicking the button" (or you can use the "auto update detection frequency" GPO to automatically check for updates):

 ( new - object - Comobject Microsoft . Update . AutoUpdate ). Detectnow()

I also recommend looking at the topic below, which talks about how to control windows update:
