CS Maintenance & Network Services Interruption for Thursday, 8/9/12

Due to the beginning of fall semester, this is the last week that we will be performing maintenance before the start of classes. We will put off further maintenance until after the semester is in full swing, and will notify the campus again once new maintenance is planned.

In order to ensure that all maintenance can be completed in one evening, we will be starting the following maintenance activities at an earlier time of 6:00 PM. We apologize for any inconvenience that this earlier start-time may create, but we want to ensure all services can be restored before the start of business on Friday.

-Beginning at 6 PM and lasting roughly 2 hours, all network and Internet services will be temporarily unavailable as the campus firewalls are being moved into new equipment racks in our data center. During this time, ALL network service (Internet access, wireless services, Banner, Home and Shared Directories, etc) will be unavailable.

-Immediately following the completion of the firewall moves, we will be performing an upgrade to the Banner Financial Aid module. During this time, all Banner services including Banner Web services for students will be unavailable. All Banner services are anticipated to be restored by 11:00 PM.

-Duplex (double-sided) printing will be set as the default for all Student Computing Labs on campus. This change is in alignment with the campus green initiatives, and is anticipated to cut down on paper waste coming from the student computer labs.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the ASU Computing Services Help Desk at 719-587-7741 or via email at computingservices@adams.edu. Thank you for your patience and support as we finish these critical maintenance tasks before the semester starts.
