Posted: 19:01:34, Tuesday, Aug 11, 2020   Expiration: 19:01:34, Friday, Aug 21, 2020  

ITS has several extended outages planned over the next two weeks in addition to regular weekly maintenance:

Wednesday, Aug 12 – Business Intelligence down at 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. 

Business Intelligence will be down from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12 as staff apply Quarterly Oracle Patches to OBIEE Production System. 

Friday, Aug. 14 – Campus network affected between 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. 

ITS staff will replace campus network border firewall beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14.  Between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. there will be two brief outages impacting Internet connectivity, both inbound to campus and outbound from campus.  These outages will also impact VPN clients and Jabber connections from off campus. 


NOTE: Due to the release of vendor updates and patches outside ITS control, any university system may experience brief intermittent outages during the weekly maintenance window from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. Because these updates may be released any time it is not possible to list them all.

If you are not able to access a system during the maintenance hour, please wait a couple of minutes and try again. If you continue to experience problems, please contact the ITS Help Desk.

Thursday, Aug. 20 – Network down on second floor of Ullsvik Hall at 5:00 p.m. 

ITS staff will continue replacement of network switches on the second floor of Ullsvik Hall beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday August 20.  The entire second floor of Ullsvik will be offline (wired, wireless, VoIP phones) for most of that evening/night.  The work will be completed before start of business on Friday, Aug. 21. 


We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your patience. If you have questions regarding these outages, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or helpdesk@uwplatt.edu.
