Server maintenance tomorrow morning (Tuesday 1st August)

Tomorrow morning (Tuesday 1st August) IT Services are planning to carry out server work during the period reserved for systems maintenance.

This work is due to start early in the morning and is expected to be completed by 09.00 but affected services should be considered 'at risk' until 10.00.

The work is to complete security updates and VMware tools updates to our Unified Access Gateway, VPN services and Exchange Email Services.

The services that will be affected will be:

VPN Services - the Staff VPN Service at vpn.bbk.ac.uk (193.61.55.240)
Exchange Email Services - All external connectivity to Exchange Email (briefly), along with several prompts for Outlook users, both internal and external, to re-authenticate while work proceeds.

We will keep service news updated on progress, and I will circulate another message to confirm that the work is completed.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
