[Network Outage] SCS Wired Network in Gates-Hillman Centers and Newell Simon Hall

TIME: Tuesday April 19, 2016 at 6:00 AM - 8:00 AM

SERVICES AFFECTED: Network connectivity at the Gates-Hillman Centers and Newell Simon Hall


SCS Computing Facilities will be upgrading the operating system on the Juniper network switches that provide network connectivity to Gates-Hillman Centers (GHC) and Newell-Simon Hall (NSH). This upgrade is necessary to address security issues reported by the vendor.

Each floor in GHC will experience a loss of network connectivity for approximately 10 minutes while the switch is upgraded. Additionally, machines in GHC and NSH may experience brief network outages as the building switches are upgraded.

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