Windows Server 2012 R2 Update Standalone Download

The Windows Server Blog has announced the release of the Windows Server 2012 R2 Update.  The update can downloaded and installed using the Windows Update feature however most production servers don’t (and should not) have direct access to the internet.  In addition, an issue with WSUS and SSL has been reported and Microsoft have temporarily pulled the plug on delivering this update via the WSUS/ Windows Catalog channel.

I’m working on a Hyper-V 2012 R2 Replica PoC at the moment and these servers don’t have direct access to the internet so I needed a manual way to install the Update.  I spent close to 20 minutes on the web this morning tracking down the download location so to hopefully save others from the same I have included the link below:
