Network upgrades in September and October


[01 October 2015]

Work scheduled for the 16th of September will now take place on Tuesday 20th October. No services are expected to be impacted by the work but an at risk warning is in place.

This is in addition to work in October as pat of Date Centre Developments.

Work on the network has been scheduled to take place between 8-9am on 10th, 11th, 14th, 15th and 16th of September. The work is an upgrade to the network switches. In principle all services are dual switch connected, meaning a switch can be removed and replaced without affecting services.

Following work on the network this morning a number of services have been affected due to the failure of the dual connection.  This includes:

  • Student Printing
  • CODA
  • Print Services Web Submission
  • Syllabus+
  • Some staff profiles (affecting desktop / filestore connections)

Most services are now back or in the process of recovering.

IT Services apologises for the inconvenience this has caused.
