Campus Data Center Firmware Upgrades Scheduled

Published | June 15, 2022

The ITS Network Team will begin work next week on firmware upgrades in W&L’s two data centers starting on Sunday, June 19th at 11:00 PM. The work is a component of routine performance and security enhancements within critical network equipment and systems.

To minimize impact to the W&L community, ITS has scheduled the work during overnight hours. Please note that for brief periods during maintenance window, campus network and internet connectivity will be impacted. 

Campus users should plan for outages between 11:00 PM and 4:00 AM starting on Sunday evening (June 19th) and again Wednesday evening (June 22nd). It is anticipated that each intermittent outage should persist for no more than 15 minutes. Scheduling details can be found below.
