Current & Scheduled Outages/System Updates
Sunday Maintenance – Reminder
Every Sunday, between 12:00am – 12:00pm, all systems will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.
Please Leave Your Windwods Computers Turned ON Overnight on Monday, May 20th
The IT Department needs to make sure all computers are restarted on a regular basis to ensure security updates are properly applied. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, a mandatory reboot command will be issued at 3:00 A.M. On Monday, May 20th, please log off your computer but do not power it off. This will allow the patches to be sent down to your computer Monday night and then applied Tuesday morning. If you turn your computer off, shortly after turning it on Tuesday, your computer will restart in order to apply these updates.
