There will be short outages (30 second to 2 minute) of the campus network and DoIT platform between 12:01 AM to 8 AM on Sunday morning (01/16/05).

Campus network and DoIT platform outages are scheduled during normal maintenance hours after midnight on Sunday mornings.

Between 12:01 AM no later than 8:00 AM on Sunday,January 16, the main and backup links that feed each Cisco 6500 server rack will be upgraded from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s. This will affect all servers connected to the Cisco 6500 switches on the platform, so anything to, from, or on the platform will experience intermittent outages. This will include every server and consequently, every service they host. The outages will last between 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

If you have any questions about these outages, please contact Bob Greenwald at 262-6149 or greenwald@wisc.edu
