Affected Servers by Security Patches

This coming Wednesday morning on, April, 18,  Library IT  will be applying patches to two servers to address security issues.  As a result, there will be service offerings that will become unavailable intermittently.  Please see the list below for details.  
Please monitor your email for announcements that the patch has been completed and that services won’t be interrupted.   
Servers: libsvcs-db-1.library.yale.internal and libsvcs-1.library.yale.internal
When: April 18 at 8.30am to 12noon
What is being done?: ITS needs to apply some patches to these servers to address some security issues
What does mean to me?: The servers that run databases and the following applications will be intermittently available or may see some connection failures during this timeframe.  Please coordinate your schedule as needed.
Why are these servers not available?:  There are some critical security issues that ITS needs to resolve on these servers as a result of a Security Design Review (SDR).
