Faculty/Staff and Students,
As many of you know, the Information Technology division has always reserved Sunday mornings from midnight until noon to perform routine maintenance and upgrades on enterprise technology at the university. During these maintenance windows, you may experience intermittent service interruptions with various systems like the network, email, or even myTCU.
We have a major firewall upgrade planned for the next maintenance window on Sunday morning. This change will affect access to the wireless network, the ability to login into computers, and other major services like websites, network printers, and file shares. You will most likely see intermittent access to these systems between 6:00am and 9:00am on Sunday, February 28th.
What does this mean for me?
Since the maintenance window occurs each week, we want everyone to be aware that they could be impacted by this work and should plan their activities accordingly. In most cases, you will never know that we are doing this work in the background but we want you to be prepared in case there are unforeseen issues that aren’t communicated to the campus at large.
Note: You can always stay informed about future outages by following our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
