To all Student Affairs staff:
From 8am-5pm on December 29-30, networking services in Boucke, HUB-Robeson Center and the Bank of America Career Services will be intermittently down in order to replace networking equipment. Nine 48-port switches will be installed to replaced out-of-warranty, end-of-life equipment. These installations are expected to be finished by December 30, with December 31 as an optional day if issues are encountered.
Also, during this timeframe, SAIT will be performing server maintenance which will involve approximately 150 servers. These servers will not impact email services (UCS) since that service is handled by ITS. Depending on complexity of the maintenance, this service window may extend itself into if not through December 31st. SAIT will test for connectivity after the work is completed. There are systems we cannot test beyond ensuring connection success:
- Point and Click
Users of these specific systems will be able to test beyond connectivity when they return to work or remotely. Problems should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the planned outage, we will share updates on our blog at: http://studentaffairsblogs.psu.edu/technology/
As always, if you have questions or concerns relating to this plan, please contact our Service Desk.
