Upcoming Data Center Maintenance

Tuesday, December 17, 2019

On Saturday, March 7, 2020, EITS will be conducting maintenance on the University network.   As a result, there will be intermittent outages of campus Internet access and campus information systems. Because these outages will be unpredictable, the community should assume that network services will be unavailable the entire day. 

On Saturday, January 25, 2020, and on Saturday, March 7, 2020, EITS will conduct maintenances on the University network. These maintenances are necessary to support an expansion and upgrade of network services that will allow EITS to continue to provide ample bandwidth and capacity for the University. These maintenances will begin at 6:00 a.m. and end at 11:59 p.m. on January 25, 2020 and March 7, 2020.

As a result, there will be intermittent outages of campus Internet access and campus information systems on both of these days. Because these outages will be unpredictable, the community should assume that network services will be unavailable during both days.

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 www.uga.edu is hosted off-campus and will remain available. 

UGA’s Central Authentication System (CAS) and UGA’s Single Sign-On (UGA SSO) will also experience outages. This will mean individuals will not be able to log in to many UGA-provided information systems such as Athena, Banner Administrative System, Degree Works and eLearning Commons (eLC). 

Individuals off campus during the maintenance windows will experience outages accessing UGAMail, websites hosted by UGA, the Virtual Private Network (VPN), ArchPass Duo and information systems hosted by EITS.

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