What is happening? As part of the regular maintenance of IST services, updates will be applied to SharePoint servers. These changes will impact both mySharePoint.uwaterloo.ca and SharePoint.uwaterloo.ca services. During this update cycle updates will be applied, and all remaining legacy ADS accounts will be removed from SharePoint. This change will not impact Security Group names that may still contain ADS in the display name.
When is this happening? Wednesday, January 25 from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 26
What is the impact to SharePoint users? SharePoint service will be briefly interrupted during the updates as servers are rebooted after the updates are applied. In some instances, users may be prompted to re-authenticate.
