Puget Sound Systems: Planned Maintenance

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
- PeopleSoft Human Resources
- PeopleSoft Financials
- PeopleSoft Campus Solutions
- 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.
Technology Services schedules regular maintenance windows, generally on the second Sunday of every other month, to ensure a secure, reliable computing environment. Thank you for your patience as we conduct this important work.
