Network Maintenance Day, Saturday October 28

ITS staff will conduct a scheduled system maintenance period on Saturday October 28 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: Internet access will be intermittent.  For this reason, all services accessed across the Internet may be inaccessible at times.  If you get into a service, you may lose access during one of the outage periods.

Services NOT affected: Any software installed directly on your computer should not be affected by the intermittent Internet outages.

What is being done: The routers for our campus Internet connection are being replaced.  Many other systems are being patched and upgraded.

When is this taking place: Saturday October 28, during Fall Break, between 6:00 AM and 12:00 noon.

What you need to do: If you must access Internet-enabled services during the maintenance, expect to lose connectivity, perhaps more than once.  

Further communications: No further communications are planned.  

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Ramón Rentas at 651-696-6633 or rentas@macalester.edu.
