Expected impact
It is expected that most windows servers will require a restart following the installation of the patches. Normally, restarts take place after core hours typically between 00:00 and 08:00 following the third Tuesday - Friday of the month. There will be some loss of service for a few minutes during restart for services that do not have built in redundancy.
