Brief Network Outage tonight (1/7) & CS Maintenance for Thursday, January 8th, 2015

***All Campus Network Outage tonight, Wednesday January 7th***

This evening, beginning at 7:00 PM and lasting until roughly 8:00 PM, ALL networking services will be unavailable as we install critical, required upgrades to the campus core router. This includes Banner systems, campus internet and wifi, and file and printing services.

***Maintenance for Thursday, January 8th***

Starting at 6:00 PM and lasting until early Friday morning, we will be upgrading the campus Computing Services Helpdesk ticketing system. During this time, customers will not be able to login to the helpdesk system to enter or check the status of their workorder tickets.

Beginning at 9:00 PM, Employee and TEC Classrooms will receive updates to Flash, Reader, Acrobat and Firefox. Employees are encouraged to log off but leave their computers on when leaving work for the day. This will assist the installation of these patches and minimize any impact.

Also beginning at 9:00 PM, Computing Services will be applying updates to various Banner back-end servers. Brief reboots of these services will occur, but impact to our customers should be minimal.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at

Thank you and Happy New Year!
