I just want to download the full 1903 patch for Windows server 2019 and can't find it anywhere. It keep redirecting to Window 10. I am sure they are based of the same OS, but there should be a way to download it manually or force a server to use it.

Windows Server 1903 is a semi-annual channel release that is a core only install. 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started-19/whats-new-in-windows-server-1903

 

Windows Server 2019 is a long term servicing branch release 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started-19/whats-new-19

 

Windows Server 1903 would need to be clean installed, there isn't a method to switch between long term and semi-annual.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started-19/servicing-channels-19

 

 Links here as to where you can download Server 1903

https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/windowsserver/2019/05/21/windows-server-version-1903-now-generally-...

 

 

I have same question. I need to find a solution about "patch management strategy for windows nodes in a hybrid Kubernetes cluster".

If you're running Semi-annual Channel releases (1803/1903) then you can in-place upgrade between releases.
But otherwise you should plan to redeploy your Windows Server K8s hosts when you require OS upgrades.

Hello Ben,

Thank you for your response. I appreciated it.

1903 whitemode so good.

 

Hi @yamahshii - what is whitemode?

I assume they're talking about 'Light Mode' in windows 10 1903 and nothing to do with SERVER
