ITS staff will conduct a scheduled system maintenance period on Saturday July 8 2017 from 6:00 AM until 12:00 noon. We will perform upgrades, test connections, apply patches and do other tasks to keep our critical campus information systems running efficiently.
Services affected: Advancement, Argos, Banner, core router, 1600grand, DegreeWorks and the Macalester Login Page (Beacon, Jobx, TimeClock Plus, Medicat, Slate, Rave, AIM, Get, Banner Application Navigator, IMLeagues, THD). Because of the core router work, there is the potential for a network-wide Internet outage of approximately 30 minutes.
What is being done: multiple upgrades and patches.
When is this taking place: Saturday morning, July 8 2017 between 6:00 AM and 12:00 noon.
What you need to do: expect that these and most other networked services - including Moodle, Advance and PaperCut-based printing - will be down, completely or intermittently, during the maintenance period.
Further communications: there will be notes in the Daily Piper Tuesday 6/27 and Thursday 6/29, as well as an email reminder Friday 6/30.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Ramón Rentas at 651-696-6633 or via email, email@example.com.
