After consulting with key stakeholders in campus offices, ITS has scheduled a regular system maintenance period for Saturday, October 27 2012 during Fall Break. Beginning at 6:00 AM and ending by 12:00 noon, we will be performing upgrades, testing connections, patching, rebooting and doing other tasks to keep our critical campus information systems running efficiently.
Internet access should remain unaffected. All other networked services will be unavailable, completely or intermittently, during the maintenance period. A very brief listing of services that will be down for maintenance include (but are not limited to) email, networked printing, file servers (G: and H: drives), Banner, Argos and Macalester's Web server. You may wonder "will [service X] be down too?" Almost certainly, the answer is "Yes, it will be down."
