Firewall Maintenance – Sunday Sept 29, 2 p.m.-5 p.m.

This is an announcement from Technology Services (TS). Please see details below.

NETWORK: Firewall Maintenance

Sunday, September 29, 2019 from  2 p.m.-5 p.m.

REASON FOR IMPACT: To ensure a secure, reliable computing environment Technology Services will be performing maintenance on our firewall during this timeframe. These firewalls help prevent unauthorized users from accessing the campus network. Because of redundant firewalls there will be minimal downtime of the network that lasts only a few seconds as we switch between the primary and secondary firewalls. Users may experience momentary drops in internet service during this maintenance window.
