DS-Print Scheduled Downtime

Advance notice of scheduled downtime for security patching and upgrades to DS-Print - Managed Print Service

Downtime is necessary for the installation of security patches and system upgrades. During downtime printing and login access to MultiFunction Devices (MFDs) will be disrupted. Print jobs submitted during this time are unlikely to succeed, and MFDs are likely to display a connection error.

Although downtime is always regretted it is vital the system is kept secure, and up to date. To minimise disruption, scheduled downtime is kept to a minimum and advance notice given. Infrequently it will be necessary to announce unscheduled downtime. In this scenario, downtime will be circulated to the DS-Print subscribers email list.  

After installing patches or upgrades, no action is required from users or institutions, with the exception of those with Konica MFDs. Konica MFDs may be found in an unresponsive state after a period of downtime, to restore service switch power off at the mains for 10 seconds and then on again. This should return the MFD to a good state.
