Patching Microsoft Windows® clusters

You can use Server Automation to automate patching of Microsoft Windows® clusters. Server Automation contains preconfigured Fixlets that allow you to patch Microsoft Windows® clusters.

The Server Automation cluster patching Fixlets enable you to patch the operating systems in Microsoft Windows® clusters by managing the cluster as the operating systems are patched. For example, you can use the Server Automation Fixlets for patching scenarios such as Microsoft SQL Server cluster patching.

If you have a File Share Witness configured for a cluster, you can check if the File Share Witness is accessible from the target computers during the patching process. For more information, see Check if File Share Witness is accessible.
