Firewall/ Network: System Maintenance

Wednesday, August 15 from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.

REASON FOR IMPACT: Technology Services will be testing our new firewall equipment to ensure that our back up procedures function correctly in the event of equipment failure. Our firewall equipment sits in front of our primary Internet line and helps funnel access appropriately. If we encounter technical issues with our main Internet line or part of our firewall equipment, we want to ensure that the campus will not lose complete network and Internet access. During this maintenance window the campus will briefly lose access to the Internet while we test our back up procedures. Any loss of Internet/ network should be brief with minimal impact to those on campus during this window.
