Scenario

This document uses the Windows Server 2012 operating system as an example to guide you in updating Windows patches.

Directions

Obtain updates via the public network.
You can install the patch through the system's Windows Update service program. The specific implementation steps are as follows:

  1. Log in to the Windows CVM.
  • Windows Server 2012: > Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update
  1. Click [check for updates] and wait for the check to complete.
  2. When the check is complete, click in "Windows updates" [ N important updates available ] or [ N optional updates available ].
  3. In the pop-up "Select installed updates" window, select the update you want to install, and click install.
    If you are prompted to restart your system after the update is completed, please restart the CVM.

When you complete the update and restart the CVM, you need to log in and observe the CVM through VNC. If the system appears "in the process of updating, please do not power off" or "configuration is not complete" and other prompts, do not perform a hard shutdown operation. Hard shutdown may damage your Cloud Virtual Machine.

Obtain updates via the private network.
If Cloud Virtual Machine cannot connect to the public network, you can install the update by using Tencent Cloud private network patch server. Tencent Cloud's Windows patch server contains most of the commonly used patch updates on Windows, but does not include hardware driver packages and some less commonly used server update packages. Some of the less used services may not be able to search for updated patches on Tencent Cloud's private network patch server.
The patch server in Tencent Cloud private network can be used as follows:

  1. Log in to the Windows CVM.
  2. Through the IE browser Access and download Tencent Cloud private network setup tool (wusin.bat).
    The download address for wusin.bat is: http://mirrors.tencentyun.com/install/windows/wusin.bat
  3. Open wusin.bat using the administrator command line tool (command).

If you execute the wusin.bat tool directly through IE, the console window will automatically close and you will not be able to observe the output.

If you no longer need to use Tencent Cloud private network Windows patch server, you can also download the wusout.bat cleanup tool to clean up. The methods are as follows:

  1. Log in to the Windows CVM.
  2. Through the IE browser Access and download Tencent Cloud private network cleaning tool (wuout.bat).
    Http://mirrors.tencentyun.com/install/windows/wusout.bat
  3. Open wusout.bat using the administrator command line tool (command).

If you execute the wusout.bat tool directly through IE, the console window will automatically close and you will not be able to observe the output.
