Patch Wednesdays: Update Schedule for OIT’s Windows Servers

OIT is standardizing its security update schedule for all OIT-managed Windows servers. These servers will be updated weekly during the normal maintenance window, 10 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday. During this time, some of our centrally managed applications may experience a brief interruption in service. These applications include, but are not limited to:

  • MyUTK
  • Meal Plan Management
  • Volcard Deposits
  • Software Downloads
  • Other custom applications hosted by OIT

Microsoft, Apple, and other operating system developers regularly release updates to patch vulnerabilities discovered in their operating system.

OIT recommends that you also update your computer and mobile devices as soon as updates are released. By enabling the auto-update feature, critical updates and patches will be managed for you. In addition to your antivirus software, these updates provide protection from malicious attacks.

If you have any questions, contact the OIT HelpDesk online or at 865-974-9900.
