Network updates during Spring break

OIT will be upgrading various network services during spring break.  Because most of these services were designed with redundancy,  disruption should be minimal.

However on March 27th, starting at 5:30am, OIT will be applying required updates to the 7 distribution switches of the campus network. This will cause a 10-15 minute network downtime for each zone of campus.  These are scheduled in the early morning for minimal impact and will complete before 7:30am.

The schedule for each distribution zone for Tuesday, March 27th:

  • 5:30AM-6:00AM
