Sunday morning network and system maintenance

This Sunday during our established maintenance window between 6 am and 10 am we will be performing the following maintenance activities:

(1)    As part of our continued network redundancy improvements we will be dual homing critical network aggregation switches that provide connectivity to Bicentennial Hall and the residential halls on the north side of campus.  While we do not expect any service interruptions, there is the possibility of loss of network connectivity for the affected buildings for less than 5 minutes.

(2)    Add an additional uplink module to a network switch in the Athletics facilities.  While we do not expect any service interruptions, there is the possibility of loss of network connectivity for only the Athletic offices for less than 5 minutes.

(3)    Add additional system resources to the web servers for the College’s primary web sites (www.middlebury.edu, www.miis.edu).  While we do not expect any service interruptions, it is possible the web sites will respond slower than normal while the individual web servers are upgraded.

We appreciate your patience as we upgrade our systems and network infrastructure.
