The Windows 10 Anniversary Update (GW2) is scheduled to arrive on Windows Server Core installations and users will be able to install the update on servers running Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2003 R2 in the coming days.
Microsoft said on Friday that the company will announce details on the rollout of the update in the near future.
The update will be rolling out to Windows Server 2017 users on Tuesday.
Microsoft is releasing the update as part of a cumulative update for Windows 10 and Windows 8.1.
It adds new features and fixes security bugs that affected Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
The update also provides improved compatibility with the operating systems of all major vendors, including Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Apple.
Microsoft has been using a staggered rollout of security updates for Windows Server since April.
Microsoft initially released its monthly security update schedule for the operating system on April 29, 2016, and the latest Windows 10 update, named Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), was released on March 17, 2018.
Microsoft’s monthly security updates schedule is a relatively short one, but the cumulative update schedule is generally longer, at six to nine months.
In addition to the GW2 security update, Microsoft will also be rolling Out the Red Ring of Protection (OROP) update, a Windows 10 security fix for vulnerabilities in the network driver drivers.
Microsoft will be releasing a separate update, called Windows Update, on Tuesday that addresses vulnerabilities that affect Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.
Microsoft also released a security update for the Office 2016 software suite for Windows.
Microsoft announced that it will be offering Windows Update free of charge on PCs running Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7 for at least the next two weeks.
Microsoft plans to offer a full version of the Windows Update for Windows 8 service for at most three weeks, though customers will be required to pay for the full version.
