Hello All,

we have some out of site managed servers based in Germany. We are on minimal support contract, the vendor only covers hardware all OS and software installations are done by us. They have Windows Server 2008 WEb installed on them. I can see there are 100's of outstanding patches which needed to be installed but I am unable to make any plan for that. They are production servers. The issue is that if during install they get screwed how I will restore them to normal. I was thinking to create an image of the current system and then restore from there but unable to do so as I don't have any physical access to these systems. I have also access to console but it looks bare minimum as well. What you Gurus will recommend for this kind of situation?
