Switch/Firewall Upgrade 7/30 and 7/31

This weekend, maintenance will be performed on IS switches and firewalls.

Here are the outage times:

Saturday 7/30:  7:30am to 12pm

Sunday 7/31:  8:00am to 12pm, may need until 4pm.

Work being performed on Saturday should be transparent, though you may experience delays or short outages during the work window.

All IS systems will be unavailable on Sunday during the maintenance window.  (Banner, HR, HR Self-Service, Time Clocks, Web Time Clocks, Kuali Applications, Applications Manager, and ODS)


Web Applications (RamWeb, Aries Web, Admissions Web, AR Web, etc) connecting to our databases(BANPROD, ODSPROD, etc) will lose connectivity.  It is recommended to shut down those applications during the window.

Notifications will be sent out when the work is complete, applications can be restarted at this point.
