Maintenance badge

[06 July 2016]

As part of the planned maintenance works over the summer 2016 period, essential network maintenance will take place on Wednesday 6th and Friday 8th July.

This work includes pre-requisite changes to the network architecture as part of the enabling works for the offsite data centre.

Data and Time of Maintenance Works:

  • Wednesday 6th July – 08:00 – 11:00
  • Friday 8th July – 08:00 – 11:00

These works will include changes to the main campus firewall and JANET connectivity. There will be a number of interruptions to external connectivity during this time. These interruptions will affect all externally hosted services and general internet access. Most services hosted by the University on campus should remain unaffected by these changes. Every effort will be made to limit the disruptive work to before 09:00, but this cannot be guaranteed.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this important work may cause.
