    Application shutdown

    lynettemoley Rookie

      Hi, could anyone recommend a way to patch multiple servers that hold one application in the correct order?

       

      Ideally what I'd like to do:

      1 - stop application services across multiple servers

      2 - patch application & database servers

      3 - reboot database server first & ensure its back on line (pre 4)

      4 - reboot application servers.

       

      Any ideas would be greatly welcome.  I believe I can achieve step 1 with the use of a Powershell script (though I can currently only get it to work if each server is running its own individual script) but I can't see a way to reboot/patch the servers in a particular order.

       

      Thanks,

      Lynette.

          Hello Lynette,

           

          If you are on the latest version of Ivanti Patch for Windows Servers, then the best option would be to use the API commands to create a PowerShell script to handle the process. The API Quick Start Guide, located here, has an example on page 8 of a similar situation of patching servers one at a time. You should be able to setup a similar script to scan, patch, and reboot servers in a particular order.

           

          Thanks,
