Network Switch Operating System Upgrades
On the evenings of August 13 (Tuesday) and 14 (Wednesday) starting at 10 p.m. each night, IT will be upgrading the network switch operating systems throughout campus.
On Tuesday the primary building switches will be upgraded to address known bugs and get the latest security updates. Each building on campus will be down for up to 30 minutes as the upgrade is completed and the switch rebooted. We will work building by building until finished.
On Wednesday the rest of the switches in each building will be upgraded as well, again getting everything to a common version to address any bugs or security issues. This will cause isolated downtimes throughout campus buildings of up to 30 minutes.
If you have questions, we can help. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 7-1111.
