February 13th, 2013

On Thursday, February 14th from 2 a.m. – 6 a.m. all BUMC Desktops set for Standard Patching will be rebooted to perform updates on Windows, Mac OS X, Microsoft Office, and various third-party software. For a complete listing of the patches applied, see the Patch Listing page on Tech Web.

Please leave your computer on Wednesday night so patching can occur. 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 have questions please contact BUMC IT Service Desk (617) 638-5914

Our standard patching window going forward will be Thursday mornings from 2 a.m. – 6 a.m. (note that reboots should only happen once a month during Windows updates).
