Computing Services Maintenance for Thursday, January 24, 2013

The following maintenance activities will take place tonight during our normally scheduled maintenance window beginning at 9:00 PM:

-There will be brief (5-10 minute) outages to various segments of our campus network as we perform upgrades to the networking switches. We will begin these updates in the Residence Halls first, and then move to employee buildings and areas. During these brief outages, all network services including wireless Internet access will be interrupted, but should be restored without the user needing to take action.

-Employee Windows computers will receive critical security and Operating System patches including updates to Windows, Thunderbird, Firefox, Flash, Shockwave and VLC. Employees are encouraged to log out and leave their computers on overnight tonight in order to allow the updates to install during non-work hours.

-Very brief outages will be experienced on the campus Content Management System (Bricolage), the campus LDAP server and web database server as we migrate these services to a different VM host. User impact should be minimal.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical upgrades and maintenance activities. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ASU Computing Services Help Desk at x7741 or via email at

Thanks and have a great day,

Computing Services
