  • The DNS/DHCP appliance will have a new reporting server installed into the grid. No service outage is anticipated.
  • The physical interfaces connecting to the DMZ network will be reconfigured. There is a potential for a brief service outage of the Library Millennium server and the ADFS servers (SSO), up to 1 minute.
  • The CommVault backup service will be upgraded. No customer impact.
  • Continuing to work with campus fiber maintenance, there will be a brief network outage for Hadley, Milliken, Kelly, Lang, and Ross Halls, as well as faculty housing on Blinn Ln. Outage will be up to 5 minutes.
  • On-premise Exchange servers will be upgraded to the next patch level. This work will continue on Sunday. No service impact is anticipated.
  • The border firewalls in VT will be upgraded to the next point release. Leveraging the highly available configuration of these devices, no service outage is anticipated.
