There will be REBOOTS of all MCECS supported Windows Servers at 6pm on Friday, January 17th, 2020. This work should be completed by 7:30PM. This will include the Windows Homedirs, Stashes, Printing, Networked Applications and Network Licenses.
Downtime for the Terminal Server will begin earlier at 5PM and be also completed by 7:30PM.
This work is needed to ensure that Windows Updates have been applied to our Servers. It is best to logout of your Windows account prior to that time.
Patches will also be released for CAT supported Windows Workstations on Wednesday evening (1/15/2020). Users with dedicated desktops will have some control over when you want to have the patches installed before the workstation deadline of 2am on Friday. See the following link for details:
If you take no action, workstations will reboot on Friday morning at 2AM if left on or shortly after power up if they have been powered off.
This should also serve as a good reminder for everyone to be sure to patch your self supported Windows desktops, laptops & home systems.
