Network Maintenance Day, Saturday January 5, 2019

ITS staff will conduct scheduled system maintenance on Saturday January 5 from 6:00 AM until 12:00 noon. All networked services, including email, ethernet and wireless networks may be unavailable during this time. 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, including email and wireless. Assume that all networked services may be intermittently unavailable during the maintenance period.

Services NOT affected: Any software installed directly on your computer that does not require a network connection should not be affected by the intermittent internet outages.

What is being done: Some campus wireless controllers are being replaced. We are making routine repairs, upgrades and patches to most networked services.

When is this taking place: Saturday January 5 2019, during winter break, between 6:00 AM and 12:00 noon.

What you need to do: If you must access networked services during the maintenance period, expect intermittent connectivity.

Further communications: Reminders will appear in the Mac Daily as the scheduled maintenance day approaches.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@macalester.edu or 651-696-6525.
