Puget Sound Systems: Planned Maintenance

Sunday, February 19 @ 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.


Update: The campus-wide network outage planned for Sunday morning has been cancelled. The remaining planned maintenance will still be performed as scheduled, from 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

From 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. a firmware update will be installed on our core switches. This will cause a full network outage on campus resulting in the following:

  • Internet access will be unavailable on campus.
  • Accessing services on campus that require a network connection will not be available including email, file shares, PeopleSoft, and other services.
  • Zoom phones connected to the campus network will not work.
  • Wifi will be unavailable.
  • Wired network will be unavailable.

From 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., the following systems will be intermittently unavailable:

  • Campus file servers
  • myPugetSound.edu
  • PeopleSoft Human Resources
  • PeopleSoft Financials
  • PeopleSoft Campus Solutions
  • vDesk
  • Various Puget Sound systems and applications

REASON FOR IMPACT: To ensure a secure, reliable computing environment, TS will be completing routine patch maintenance on our Puget Sound production servers.
