Network Outage 10-28-2006

DATE/DAY: Saturday, October 28, 2006 from 11:00pm to 11:30pm

AREA AFFECTED: Entire SCS network

A software upgrade needs to be performed on the core SCS switch. The upgrade procedure will cause a slight disruption of the network traffic flow through the switch. However, the potential exists that a reboot of the core switch will have to occur if there are problems with the upgrade procedure. A full reboot of the core switch will mean a network outage for about 5 minutes for entire SCS network. The outage includes access to machines and services on the local SCS network as well as access to Andrew, Internet, and research networks.

Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
