Updated: Firewall upgrade Tues Oct 13 6:00-8:00am

Update Oct 13 7:45am: The upgrade was rolled back due to a previously undetected hardware problem. This resulted in two sets of failover events, so the affected services below experienced two sets of interruptions. Services were functional and stable by 7:30am.

IT Services will be performing an upgrade to the campus firewalls Tuesday October 13 between 6:00am-8:00am. During this time, certain services may be briefly interrupted, but Internet access should not be affected. A significant outage is not anticipated.

Blackboard will be down from 5:00am until 7:30am. Other affected services include access to Computer Science servers and VPN services. These service interruptions should last 1-2 minutes.

If you are experiencing problems after 8:00am, please contact the IT Service Desk at ext. 4440.
