What is happening? As part of the regular maintenance of IST services, updates  will be applied to SharePoint servers. These changes will impact both mySharePoint.uwaterloo.ca and SharePoint.uwaterloo.ca services. During this update cycle updates will be applied, and all remaining legacy ADS accounts will be removed from SharePoint. This change will not impact Security Group names that may still contain ADS in the display name.

When is this happening? Monday, May 30. The process will begin at 8:00 p.m. and will take several hours for the updates to run.

What is the impact to SharePoint users? SharePoint service will be briefly interrupted during the updates as servers are rebooted after the patches are applied. In some instances, users may be prompted to re-authenticate.

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 44357
