UMR IT will be performing critical security updates on all campus Windows and Linux servers on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday. This process is similar to the standard Windows desktop security updates but affects many of the campus computing services available. During the maintenance window, customers may have difficulty accessing a number of services, including e-mail, web applications (for example,, applications that need to access the licensing servers, and any other service hosted on the campus Windows-based or Linux-based servers.
Interruptions in service will last from 5-30 minutes, depending on which service is updated. UMR IT recommends that all IT customers save their work before the servers are updated to keep from losing any data. For more information,contact the UMR IT Help Desk at 341-HELP or submit an online Help Request.
