What is happening? Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and license servers will be restarted to apply updates. Servers include: licsrv1, licsrv2, vdisrv1 - 6

When is this happening? Saturday, December 19 from 10:00 a.m. to noon.

What is the impact? Users' private VDIs and SPSS VDI environments will be unavailable during the maintenance window. Users of MATLAB, Comsol Multiphysics, ArcGIS will not be able to start new instances of the software while the license server is rebooting. Existing sessions should continue to work, but could terminate unexpectedly in case of an extended outage. Work should be saved frequently to avoid data loss.
