Selective windows update install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way on Windows Server 2016 to install only selected updates?

    Consider the following:

    There are three updates pending
    - Windows Server Cumulative Update
    - Windows Defender Definitions Update
    - A specific product update (SharePoint Server, Office Online Server etc.)

    I'd like to skip the last one, because it requires manual post-setup steps (running psconfig for SharePoint and rebuilding the farm for OOS). On previous versions I could tick off a checkbox next to updates I wanted to leave for later and go on with OS updates as soon as possible. Now I have to defer them all until I'm ready with the specific product update. Is there a way to do the same in Server 2016 other than blocking the specific product updates on WSUS and in result not updating them ever?
