Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Posted May 08, 2020 - 22:00 NZST
Staff and postgraduates with Windows PCs using SCCM will have the updates available in software centre from 6pm Friday 1st May.
The updates will install automatically on Friday 8th May after 10pm and a restart will be enforced during the update process.

Important: If you are working from home using a UoC computer at your home, please run the updates from Software Centre as soon as possible, rather than waiting for the deadline to pass
Instructions for installing updates from Software Centre are below.

Instructions for UoC SOE computers to manually install the updates from software centre –

Run Software Centre from the start menu. If you cannot see the application, the shortcut is available under the Microsoft System Center folder. If software centre does not start, please contact the service desk for help.

On the left hand side there is a tab called Updates. Click on the tab to show the updates still to be installed. On the top right, there is a link called Update All. Click on this, and the updates will download and install.

You can leave the updates installing in the background while you work, or start the installation at the end of your work day. When the updates have completed installing, you will receive notification about a reboot. You can delay the reboot, or the computer will automatically reboot after 90 minutes.
