New Domain Controller

The new domain controller UISDC2 (10.201.1.102) is up and running. DHCP has been updated to use this new DC as well.

 

It will replace UISDC02 which is scheduled for shutdown on August 4th. Do not use UISDC02’s IP of 10.101.10.38 for DNS or any other configurations as of now, and the process of phasing out its usage should begin now.

 

The old Windows Server 2008 domain controllers UISDC01 and UISDC02 will be shutdown on August 4th, and will be completely decommissioned shortly after.

New Domain Controller

The new domain controller UISDC1 (10.201.1.101) is up and running. This is now the PDC of the UISAD domain. DHCP has been updated to use this new DC as well.

 

 

It will replace UISDC01 which is scheduled for shutdown on August 4th. Do not use UISDC01’s IP of 10.101.10.36 for DNS or any other configurations as of now, and the process of phasing out its usage should begin now.

 

Tomorrow, the same process can begin for UISDC02.

Updates Today – Completed as of 12:10PM

We will be applying Exchange and Windows updates to the Exchange servers today. Rolling reboots will occur. Some users may be momentarily disconnected and reconnected automatically as their mailbox fails over to other database servers. This process will continue throughout the morning, and into the afternoon until all servers are completed.

Updated: Exchange 2010 Updates on 10/28/14

Update 3:10pm 10/28/14:

All updates are complete!

Update 12 noon 10/28/14:

Updates are proceeding along, taking a bit longer than anticipated. No problems so far, but we are not complete at this point (about 70% complete).

Starting at approximately 10am we will apply Update Rollup 7 to the Exchange servers. It is primarily a bug fix patch with some Daylight Savings Time updates.

There will be rolling reboots, users may get the momentary disconnection message as the mailbox servers failover, users with Outlook in Cached mode should not see anything.

We expect patching to finish up around lunch time. No mail outage is expected.
