UGA Websites, Network to be Affected by Maintenance

Monday, February 15, 2016

A major maintenance project will begin on Friday, March 4, starting at 10 p.m. and ending on Saturday, March 5, at 7 a.m. EST. This will result in a disruption to many UGA IT services.

In order to minimize the impact on the UGA community, this work is being conducted during a low demand period for UGA network and web services. In an effort to ensure the continual growth and stability of its network services, UGA must occasionally plan maintenance projects.

The maintenance work will impact people accessing UGA technology services both on and off the main Athens campus during the maintenance times.

For people on campus during the maintenance window, they may experience disruptions accessing external, non-UGA web services, such as the Internet and UGAMail.

For people off campus during the maintenance window, they may experience disruptions to accessing UGAMail, websites hosted by UGA, the main UGA website (www.uga.edu), the Virtual Private Network (VPN), ArchPass and web services hosted by EITS. They may also experience disruptions to UGA’s Central Authentication System (CAS) to log in to UGA-provided web services, such as Athena, eLearning Commons (eLC), lynda.com and the UGA Employee Self Service website.

Additional details and progress reports will be posted at status.uga.edu and on the EITS Twitter feed at @uga_eits.
