I am running SBS 2002 with exchange 2000 on it. If I have a secuirty update that calls for a re-boot. Can I do this in the middle of a business day with all my users connected and working? Will they be required to re-boot their workstations to establish a new connection with the server?

thanks

Hi candoindy,

Don't reboot your server while people are connected to it, for several reasons:
1) Possible data-loss
2) An awful lot of moaning users

Schedule a reboot during some off time.

Greetings,
