Each week your machine is scheduled to perform a set of maintenance tasks and apply patches to keep it secure and running as well as possible. During this maintenance period please leave your machines on. You can logoff, but unless your machine is on our automated maintenance cannot be performed.
Some maintenance items may require a reboot of the workstations and servers. Please make sure you save any work in progress and close all applications before heading home. You will receive a pop-up notification on the day of maintenance.
If you remain logged in to your machine on the maintenance night, you may notice the next morning that drive mappings or network programs such as Outlook are not responding correctly. Please logoff your machine, then back on and these problems should resolve themselves. If they do not, please contact as described above.
