Data Centre Refurbishment - Planned network maintenance

Access to network services at risk during the evenings Mon 14 - Fri 17 Sept

What is happening?

As part of the on-going refurbishment of the Edward Wright Data Centre, DIT require to undertake network maintenance each evening next week (Monday 10 September - Friday 14 September) between the hours of 18:00 and 22:00.

During these maintenance periods, all network services will be at risk. However the actual time of interruption will depend purely on the progress we make every evening and as a result it is impossible to predict exactly when a particular service will be at risk. 

If an outage occurs for any service, you may find access to applications or resources impacted for up to 30 seconds at a time.

What should you do?

If you have to work after 18:00 between the above dates, please be aware that access to network resources may be intermittent and should be considered at risk.

Please ensure that you save your work on a regular basis, including saving to the C drive if required. 

Remember to copy your work back to your network shared space after the outage.
