So in light of the recent Exchange vulnerabilities i'm asking myself the question why those Updates arent included in the automatic update function of any MS Server ?
I can see them in MS Update Catalouge but the won't be downloaded or applied when i search vor them in the automatic Update section? Or do i have it all wrong and i need to do this manuelay everytime a new CU is released? Thx

    Hi,
    You need to tick "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Winodows", it's in different location in different versions of win server, the following is for windows server 2012r2 and windows server 2019:
