Emergency Campus Network Outage

SCS Computing Facilities has received the following notification from Computing Services

(U.S. EDT)

DAY: Saturday

DATE: February 3, 2007

TIME: 5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.



If you are using a Wired or Wireless connection, you will not have a network connection. Therefore, you will NOT have access to many services throughout the course of this maintenance (e.g., email, calendar, Internet connectivity, etc.). Likewise, users will not have access to services hosted on servers within your building.


As part of the final phase of the maintenance performed last week on the network infrastructure, we will need to reboot ALL wired switches and several wireless access points around campus. Each building will experience around a 15 minute outage. We will roll these outages across campus finishing everything by 9:00 am.

Please direct any questions or comments to the Computing Services Help Center (x8-HELP or or to your departmental administrator or DSP consultant.
