Sunday morning maintenance

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

This Sunday morning during our established maintenance window between 6 am and 10 am EDT we will be upgrading a number of essential switches in the path between our network core and our Internet service providers.  During this period there will be as many 7 Internet connectivity outages each lasting between 5 and 20 minutes.

We will be also be upgrading our wireless network infrastructure this Sunday morning from approximately 7:30 until 9:00 am EDT.  During this period each WAP on campus will reboot causing a few minutes service interruption for the area it serves – the WAPs will reboot across campus at different times as their supporting controllers are upgraded.

We appreciate your patience as this essential work is completed.

Best regards,

Jim

Sunday morning network maintenance

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

The following essential network maintenance activity is planned for this Sunday morning that will result in extended service interruptions throughout the campus.

Between  6:30 and 7:15 am the network core’s components will be upgraded.  While all of the components of the network core are redundant, not all parts of the network throughout the campus have a path back to both sides of the network core.  As a result there will be a 20 – 30 minute network service interruption for the majority of buildings on campus.

Between 7:00 and 8:15 am critical network aggregation switches that connect campus buildings and server farms to the network core will be upgraded.  This will result in a complete interruption of network connectivity of approximately 30 minutes throughout the campus.  This includes access to the College’s primary web sites, Email, MiddFiles – all systems hosted at Middlebury.

Between 7:45 and 9:00 am our border gateway routers and other components that connect the network core with the Internet will be upgraded.  We expect four 3-5 minute periods where Internet routing will be in flux and expect transient loss of Internet connectivity for the Middlebury campus.  During these four 3-5 minute periods, the VPNs with MIIS and Ellucian may be interrupted briefly, this would impact reaching Banner SSB and INB.

These network upgrades are essential and must be completed in a timely manner.  We appreciate your patience as we strive to keep our network operating optimally.

Wiley Online Library down

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

The Wiley Online Library is non-functional for us and for other libraries around the country. There has not been any official notification from Wiley, so I cannot predict when access will be restored. When I know more, I will add an update in a comment to this post.
