I just wanted to be sure I included all the steps Ive already done.
PASS Background Intelligent Transfer Service is running. Visit the Microsoft Update Catalog to download each of these update packages: After downloading the files from the Microsoft Update Catalog, save them to a network share or local directory such as C:\Servicing Packages.You can rename the files based on their KB number as we've done below to make them easier to identify.Im connected to the Internet via a Satellite connection, so I dont want to download all 24GB of updates again. Once all the updates are copied across, I then pointed the new server to Microsoft Update for all new synchronizations. Note: If you've created the Nano Server VHD or VHDX image using the New-Nano Server Image cmdlet and didn't specify a Max Size for the virtual hard disk file, the default size of 4GB is too small to apply the cumulative update.
