Selected OS Restarts Windows Server VPS' January 16th, 2020

Thursday, January 16, 2020 11:34:41 AM CST

    Today, Thursday January 16th, 2020, we will be performing unscheduled reboots to a select number of Windows Server VMs to resolve CPU issues that have occurred as a side effect of the Windows Update process. Microsoft has pushed out a patch to fix a critical vulnerability, and that patch has caused CPU consumption issues for a select number of customers that we are resolving now.

    For those effected, the reboot will be short, and sites and services will be back online quickly. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working not to see why this update has effected the operating system in this fashion, so this action will not be needed again in the future.
