Ongoing Thursday Morning BUMC Computer Patching

in News
April 3rd, 2013

Every Thursday morning from 2 a.m. – 6 a.m., all BUMC Computers configured for Standard Patching will be rebooted to perform updates on Windows, Mac OS X, Microsoft Office, Adobe, Java and other software applications.

Please leave your computer on Wednesday nights so patching can occur. Make sure you save any open documents before you leave for the day. If you have a laptop, leave it plugged in and the lid open.

You will be reminded with a pop-up (see below) on your desktop Wednesday afternoon. If you do not receive a pop-up then your computer is excluded from updates or does not have BUMC Asset Management software on it (Dell KACE). If you would like your computer included or excluded from our Standard Patching or have other questions about this process please contact the Service Desk at (617) 638-5914.
