We patched our test AD forest on Wednesday afternoon and production AD
forest servers Thursday evening...including DC's, Exchange, PKI, etc.
Everything looks good so far.  :)  

There was a brief problem with Windows Update not detecting the patch on
a DC, but MS fixed that as soon as we reported it (Wednesday).
