UMR IT will be distributing critical security updates via the SUS servers on all IT-supported Windows XP machines with a campus-standard install on Monday, Sept. 17. These updates will improve the security of the Windows XP operating system and Microsoft Office 2002 and 2003.
Customers who use IT-installed computers (faculty, staff, CLC computers, etc.) may be prompted to reboot their computers starting 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18. Customers with administrative privileges may be prompted before 3 p.m. The affected computers will automatically reboot themselves if no one is logged in.
UMR IT recommends that all IT customers save their work before the servers are updated to keep from losing any data. Internet Explorer 7 (IE 7) will NOT be installed as a part of this update. IE 7 is not yet compatible with a number of Web applications commonly used on the UMR campus, including PeopleSoft and Documentum Web Publisher. IE 7 will not be installed on campus-standard machines until after UMR IT determines that IE 7 is compatible with current campus Web applications.
For more information, contact the UMR IT Help Desk at 341-HELP or submit an online Help Request.
