  3. Hello Stefan,

    Is it recommended to install the security update using windows update or manually? Becuz after every update we have to run the psconfig right?

  4. Hi Puneet,
    you can use both ways.
    PSCONFIG only has to be run once after all fixes are installed.
    Cheers,

  5. Hello Stefan,
    I have a farm of three servers can I apply the PU to all servers simultaneously or must I apply the PU to the servers sequentially?

  6. Hi Tim,
    if downtime is not an issue for you you can install the fixes on all machines in parallel.
    Just for the configuration wizard you need to ensure that it runs on only one machine at the start. After that is done you can run it on the remaining machines in parallel.
    Cheers,
    Stefan
