During the Tuesday, 19 July 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: software will be updated on the network switches in the buildings listed below. All network services (including Wi-Fi and IP telephones) will be disrupted in those buildings. It is expected that each building will take up to 2 hours to complete.

    • Africa Media Matrix (AMM)
    • Biological Sciences Building
  • PBX: the central server for the university telephone system will be rebooted.  We expect that all phones (IP telephones and emergency phones) will be unable to make or receive calls for a period of around 15 minutes.  Phones will likely show a message reading "Discover 146.231.128.90" during that time.

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.
