Patches and Upgrades

Managed Computer Updates

Windows Updates

Microsoft releases updates on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.

The updates are then pushed to managed computers the Thursday of that week. When this happens a notification window will appear notifying the logged in user that there are updates available for install. The user will then be able to install the updates at their convenience until Monday at 9:30 p.m.. At this time the updates will automatically be installed on the computer and the computer will be restarted. If the computer is turned off at this time, the updates will be installed when the computer is turned on again and will be required to restart after the updates install.

Macintosh Updates

Updates for Macintosh computers become available for install after Apple makes them available. After the updates are made available by Apple the updates will install automatically. There may or may not be an option for the user to postpone it one time. Most updates will require a restart.
