Planned Maintenance: Skype for Business capacity upgrade

We have maintenance planned for Skype for Business:

  • Starting March 26, 2021 16:00 UTC.
  • Ending March 26, 2021 07:00 UTC.
  • Starting April 2, 2021 16:00 UTC.
  • Ending April 2, 2021 07:00 UTC.

How this will affect you organization:

Skype for Business is migrating you to new capacity. The impact to users is expected to be a brief (< 5 minutes) disconnect from the service if they are actively using the service at the time of upgrade. Users who experience a disconnect, will be able to rejoin meetings, once service connectivity resumes. The maintenance will be performed during the weekend to minimize impact.

For organizations with users around the globe, we recognize that “outside of normal business hours” might affect you differently. We apologize for the impact this may have on your users. We are working hard to improve Skype for Business, to minimize these maintenance windows.

What you need to do to prepare:

There is nothing you need to do to prepare but you might want to notify your users about this.
