Microsoft & Third Party Updates

Feb 12, 2014

Good morning,


As part of our ongoing technology security procedures, KSBIT Operations will approve new software patches this Friday, 2.14.2014, for KSB desktops & laptops on the ADS domain; laptops and machines not on the domain are not updated by this process.  The patches will download during the day and install and reboot your machine at 1am Saturday or Sunday as needed.  The KSBIT Helpdesk recommends that you save your work and restart your machine before leaving for the day Friday afternoon.


If your machine is shutoff this weekend, the patches will attempt to install immediately the next time your machine is turned on. If the updates fail to install, they will try again at 1am the following day. Most off campus desktop and laptop computers are configured to receive updates automatically from Microsoft, therefore they should update on their own. However, if anyone has a machine not configured for automatic updates, you'll need to perform a manual update.


If anyone has a question about this process, please contact the KSBIT Help Desk at 5-4247 or send email to    


Thank you,


Kevin Hostetler

Associate Director of Client Services
