This weekend is our monthly patch weekend.  All COE servers will be rebooted, so you may experience momentary downtime connecting to:

·         COE Email (
·         COE File Servers ( /
·         COE Web Services (research group websites)
·         COE License Servers (
·         COE Hosted Research Servers and Applications

Any loss of connectivity will be temporary, so if you find yourself unable to connect, please try again in a few minutes.  Patching will take place between 5pm and midnight on Saturday, and may continue on Sunday if needed.  Please note that the systems will not all be down simultaneously – patching is limited to one server at a time.

Please take this opportunity to reboot your own computer if it’s prompting you to install patches.

Thank you for your help in keeping our computing systems secure!
