Windows servers need to apply patches and reboot on a regular monthly basis. In response to high risk threats, MFCF will schedule reboots on short notice. MFCF will attempt to contact all logged on users before any reboots. If a user does not respond to log out requests in a reasonable time, they risk losing unsaved work when the server is rebooted to apply the updates.
