ERIS Patching Schedule for February 2020
This is a reminder that the ERIS Infrastructure team will be patching both Non-Production and Production VM’s and Systems during the last 2 weeks in February 2020.
We are changing the schedule for the non-production nodes from the last Wednesday of the month to Wednesday and Thursday of the third week of each month. Non-production nodes, servers and VM’s that begin with the letter A – K will be patched on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, and nodes, servers, and VM’s that begin with the letter M – Z will be patched on the 3rd Thursday of each month. The production patching schedule will remain on the last Saturday of the month.
Below are the dates and times for the February patching process:
- Non-production VM’s A-K: Wednesday, February 19th from 12pm - 8PM
- Non-production VM’s L-Z: Thursday, February 20th from 12pm - 8PM
- Production VM’s: Saturday, February 29th from 9AM – 6PM
Applications, Databases, Systems and VM’s will experience downtime when the database servers are patched when the ERIS proxy server is patched and again when the application VM's are patched. Each downtime should be short however, applications could experience 3 outages during the maintenance window.
