mapu038

We've been notified by TENET that maintenance will be undertaken on the router which provides TENET's Internet access services to the university.  Work will begin at 9 PM on Monday, 5 October, and is expected to take an hour to complete.  This maintenance was announced previously, but TENET weren't able to do the maintenance on that evening.

This work ought not to cause a major Internet outage for the university as connectivity should still be provided by our commercial Internet service provider.  However, it is possible that temporary disruption may occur as TENET's work begins.

Connectivity to SEALS services will be affected.  SEALS services will be unavailable, except:

  • OPAC, Sierra, Handle and Vital services will be accessible from the RU campus network or VPN service, and
  • Handle and Vital services will be accessible from IPv6-enabled networks.

All network services at the EBRU experimental station will be unavailable during the maintenance.
