Waterman network upgrades scheduled for Monday evening, December 23,
will cause brief outages, and are likely to disrupt some network
printing services Tuesday and Wednesday. Because of the legacy
wiring in Waterman, it is not possible to predict which computers and
printers will be affected. Some computers and printers will be
connected to different subnets than they are now, with the following
 Some networked printers will require site visits for
reconfiguration, as well as server changes.
 For a small number of people, applications and Samba
connections that rely on computers having fixed IP addresses may
fail, requiring authorization of the new IP addresses.
 Most computers and printers will function as usual; some will
need to be restarted.
There's never a great time to schedule down time, but this time was
chosen with the intent of inconveniencing as few people as possible.
If your office will be severely impacted by potential loss of
network-based printing Monday evening, Tuesday, and Wednesday, please
contact me so that alternatives can be arranged.
Please report any printing or computer connectivity problems to the
Help Line on Wednesday morning (6-2604 or [log in to unmask]), or to me
via email or phone.
