Remote-updating mode is useful for monitoring real-time progress during the Updating Run, and for clusters that are running on Server Core installations. If you specify a pre-update script, be sure that settings such as the time limits for example, StopAfter are configured to allow the script to run successfully.

Restores the clustered roles on the node. As a best practice, the script should be located on a disk in cluster storage, or at a highly available network file share, to ensure that it is always accessible to all of the cluster nodes. An administrator can also trigger updates on-demand in this mode, or simply use the remote-updating approach if desired. If one more node fails, the Updating Run is stopped.

Brings the node out of maintenance mode. Moves to update the next node. The Update Coordinator is not a member of the cluster that is updated during the Updating Run. However, you can specify an optional argument, for example to specify a standard Windows Update Agent query string to filter the set of updates that are applied by the plug-in. Expand the Management node.

If you specify a pre-update or a post-update PowerShell script, the entire process of running scripts and performing updates must be complete within the StopAfter time limit. Multiple pairs are automatically separated with semicolons. Updating Run Profiles enable you to rapidly reuse the same settings across Updating Runs and easily share the update settings with other failover clusters. Moves the clustered roles off the node. To enable remote-updating mode, install the Failover Clustering Tools on a computer that has network connectivity to the failover cluster.

Windows Server is yet another great addition to the Microsoft product family. For detailed requirements information, see Cluster-Aware Updating requirements and best practices.
