Information Systems & Technology (IST) plans to apply updates to the various servers within the Exchange environment “Connect”. Since these updates will require system reboots, there will be service interruptions during the updating process.
The updates are due to be applied between 11:00pm and midnight on Monday, August 24 and again on Tuesday, August 25 between 11:00pm and midnight. The servers being patched have failover mechanisms in place so no mail will be lost during the updates, however, any open mail connections will be closed/dropped during the reboot. If anyone leaves their workstation with an Outlook session open overnight (i.e. logged in but locked), that person will need to restart/re-launch their Outlook email client software the following morning.
