Network maintenance planned for October 24

Tuesday, October 6, 2020

EITS plans to conduct a network maintenance on October 24, 2020.

Network maintenances are necessary to continue to support the network, allowing EITS to provide ample bandwidth and Internet capacity to the University in the future.

We typically conduct large network maintenances twice a year, during which campus Internet and campus information systems are usually inaccessible.

The October 24 maintenance will begin at 6:00 a.m. and end at 11:59 p.m.. The outages associated with the maintenance will be unpredictable, so the UGA community should assume that network services will be unavailable during the entire day.

Systems that use services in the UGA Boyd Data Center will experience outages. This also includes UGA websites hosted in the Boyd Data Center. The University’s primary web site at is hosted off-campus and will remain available.

UGA’s Single Sign-On (UGA SSO) also will experience outages. This means individuals will not be able to log in to many UGA-provided information systems including the following:

  • DawgCheck
  • Athena
  • Banner Administrative System
  • Degree Works
  • eLearning Commons (eLC)
  • UGA Financial Management System
  • UGA Budget Management System
  • UGAJobs
  • UGAmart
  • OneUSG Connect and OneUSG Connect Benefits

Individuals off campus during the maintenance window will experience outages accessing UGAMail, websites hosted by UGA, the Virtual Private Network (VPN), ArchPass Duo, and information systems hosted by EITS. All systems behind the Central Departmental firewalls will experience outages to their access to the UGA network.
