With Microsoft’s early release of a patch fixing the Windows Metafile (WMF) vulnerability, IDSG will be patching the terminal server, HERMES, as well as the Windows Domain Controllers today, Thursday, January 05, 2006.
HERMES will be down briefly at 3:30p to apply the patch. So if you’re using HERMES, please save your work and log-off before then. The downtime shouldn’t last more than a few minutes.
The Domain Controllers will be rebooted between 3:00p and 3:30p, however, this should not disrupt normal operation.
