D.

Explanation:
We have an update to apply to fix the vulnerability. The update should be tested first in a lab environment, not
on the production server to ensure it doesn’t cause any other problems with the server. After testing the update,
we should backup the server to enable us to roll back any changes in the event of any unforeseen problems
with the update. The question states that the server will require a reboot. This will result in downtime so you
should schedule the downtime before installing the patch. After installing the update, you should monitor the
server to ensure it is functioning correctly.
