Beginning at 6 am on Friday, October 7, ETS Network Services will be upgrading the firewall that protects most of the central, Windows-based network services. There will be a brief interruption, expected to be less than thirty minutes, in the availability of these services, which includes:


·         Campus Active Directory domain services

·         Primary file server \\

·         Server-based shared printers

·         SharePoint and PartnerPoint

·         Document Imaging (ApplicationXtender) and fax services

·         Windows Deployment Services and LiteTouch


In addition, there are numerous departmental applications that rely upon Campus domain-based services. These applications may experience interruptions during this maintenance period, as well.


If the timing of this service outage creates an unreasonable hardship for you, please contact [log in to unmask] as soon as possible.
