IT maintenance: January 23-27
Tuesday and Wednesday, January 24 and 25, 6:00 a.m. – 6:45 a.m.: Network Switch Reboots
- IT network engineers will perform necessary network equipment maintenance this week in several buildings across UM’s network. This activity involves updates to network switches and requires restarting the switches to complete the process. During the restart process, network service is impacted, and downtime lasts a couple of minutes and is limited to the area involved with the particular switch being restarted. This is a regular campus-wide activity which occurs as updates are released, and is scheduled early in the mornings for minimal impact to the UM campus community.
Future activity: Java Plug-in update to Banner server on February 15
- As new versions of Java are released, IT updates the Java Plug-in on the Banner Support website. In January Java released version 1.6.30. IT will update the Banner Support website and Banner server to this new release on February 15. Please work with your Banner users to update their Java versions by February 15. A message will be sent directly to Banner users this week, alerting them to this upgrade. They will be directed to contact their IT departmental administrator if they are unable to perform the update themselves. We want to give you some lead time first.
