Computing Services Maintenance for Thursday, 8/4 and Saturday, 8/6

Computing Services will be performing two major maintenance activities this week:

  • Beginning at 5:00 PM on Thursday (8/4), network and Internet access on campus will be down as we migrate to the new core router. This device controls all network traffic and requires significant down time for installation and testing. Service is anticipated to be restored by midnight so that Friday campus operations are not affected. Also during this time, a change to our DNS (domain name services) will be made, but should not have any visible impact to our users.
  • On Saturday 8/6, the Banner team will be taking the Banner system down briefly from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM and then again from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. ¬†All Banner systems should remain functional during the 11-4 window. This outage is needed to allow us to re-establish redundancy that was lost during the recent Banner hardware failures.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we perform these activities in preparation for the fall semester. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the ASC Computing Services Helpdesk at x7741 or contact us via email at asccompserv@adams.edu
