Well the way I do it is like this.


Failover all groups to node 1 

Patch node 2 reboot as needed. 

Once complete failover everything to node 2

Patch node 1 and reboot as needed.

Once all reboots are complete, distribute groups across nodes.

Subject: [exchangelist] Patching an Exchange 2003 Cluster

Hello to all,


 I was wondering if someone has a rule of tumb, or proper procedure for
that matter, for patching the os on a windows 2003 cluster running
Exchange 2003.

It is an Active/Passive Cluster
