mapu038

During the Tuesday, 14 June maintenance window, maintenance work will affect certain services, starting at 5:30 PM and being completed before midnight. The following work is planned:

  • Access switches: the stacking connections of the switches which make up the switch stacks in the following buildings will be reconfigured.  This will involve reconfiguring at least some units from scratch.  All network services (including Wi-Fi and IP telephones) will be unavailable, possibly for as long as two hours.
    • Africa Media Matrix (AMM)
    • Biological Sciences (only if maintenance in AMM can be completed with enough time remaining)
  • Firewalls: software will be updated on the firewalls which connect the Internet to the campus, SEALS and public networks.  As the firewalls operate as a redundant pair, no noticeable outage is expected during this maintenance.

This work is being conducted during a minor maintenance period. Should there be a compelling reason why this work should not go ahead as planned, please contact support@ru.ac.za before 3:00 PM on Tuesday.
