What is happening? Security patches are being applied to the servers providing Exchange Email and Calendar services.

Why is it being done? Microsoft released a critical security patch on Dec.10 for the version of Exchange currently in production on Connect. A risk assessment by IST staff has determined that this patch warrants immediate installation.

When is this happening? December 12 between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.

How does this impact me? While email and calendar services will continue to be available during this time, users connected to Exchange during the maintenance window may be prompted to re-connect by entering their username and password.

Questions or concerns?  Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 84357.
