I have a number of remote servers that I am upgrading from OES 11.1 to OES2015. I will be performing a down server upgrade by the DVD install in VMware. My question is during the upgrade process you have the option to apply patches during the upgrade. Our WAN links are slow and sometimes unreliable, I am thinking of performing the upgrade without applying the patches during the upgrade and applying the patches post upgrade. I typically do not like to shoot myself into the foot and was wondering if anyone has any comments on post upgrade patching versus during the upgrade.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
