Windows Update Advisement – Workstations (11-13-2015)

Posted on | November 13, 2015 | Comments Off on Windows Update Advisement – Workstations (11-13-2015)

win8-update-windows-6*** Please disregard this schedule if requested to be on custom patch management ***

Patch Tuesday has arrived this week and we have recently approved important and critical updates from Microsoft.  Per usual, workstations will be scheduled to initiate updates during the maintenance hours between (11:00PM3:00AM PST). Please send a friendly reminder to all end-users to close-out all applications (log off) and have their workstations remain powered on for these updates to process successfully on any given day of  the following week.  We will deploy updates every night until they are fully completed.  If the machines are online and the update completes, those machines will not be subjected to additional updates until further notice.

Our goal is to capture every machine that is powered on during the allotted time for the required maintenance.  This process is an automated procedure and only runs if the machine is pending new updates.

We truly appreciate your cooperation through this process and we strive to ensure you are protected with the latest critical updates.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the K&R NOC department at msp@krns-inc.com or 858-292-5766.

Windows Update Advisement – Servers (October-30-2015)

Posted on | October 30, 2015 | Comments Off on Windows Update Advisement – Servers (October-30-2015)

*** Please disregard email for custom patch schedules ***

 

image7This is a notification for Server maintenance and that Microsoft has released new critical and important security updates.  K&R Network Solutions has recently approved Windows Updates that are considered critical and important to maintain the stability and ensure optimal security of your network.  These updates are additions to your respective Operating Systems and Software that can help prevent or fix problems, improve how your server works, or enhance the computing overall experience.

 

The updates will be rolled out on the following Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday until servers are fully patched successfully.  All Servers with new missing updates will be subjected to update operations followed by reboots during the maintenance window which is from 11:00PM-3:00AM Pacific Time.  Unfortunately Microsoft doesn’t always release perfect patches and there is always a possibility that updates don’t work as planned.  In the event that a server hangs, or disables a critical service (i.e., email, business applications, etc.), we will be more prepared to address the issue and identify updates as being the culprit.

 

After this month of updates have been initialized, we will continue to monitor the release of new updates by Microsoft and go through the process of testing and denying any potential patch that may have a negative impact on services.  This approval and notification process will occur on a monthly bases to accommodate the monthly release of Microsoft’s patch Tuesday schedule and to screen for any bad patches.

Labor Day Weekend, 2015

Posted on | September 1, 2015 | Comments Off on Labor Day Weekend, 2015

K&R Network Solutions will be closed on Monday, September 7th, 2015 in observance of Labor Day. For any clients needing assistance during the holiday, please call the main phone number 858-292-5766 and follow the prompts for emergency assistance.

We often think of Labor Day as the official “close” of summer, and usually a day outside and away from the office. Since we have plenty of sunny days left this season in San Diego, we’d like to consider the meaning of Labor Day on this occasion:

laborday

Labor Day in USA is always held on the first Monday of September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.
