Burning the Midnight Oil doing System Maintenance

We work hard to keep the Ferris servers and computer systems up to date with security updates and the latest feature releases. Maintenance is scheduled to happen in the middle of the night to minimize the affect it has on your work.

ITS staff start at 6 pm to prepare their updates for the hundreds of servers we support. However, we do our best to never have a major system down before 10 pm at night. We make sure to have all systems back up and running by 6 am so your work day goes smoothly. The 2012 Network Maintenance Schedule is posted on-line at the link below so you will never be caught by surprise.

Please pass this information on -- in your syllabus, on your calendar, or to whoever needs to know. And let us know if you ever have any concern about upcoming maintenance.  We'd be happy to explain what we are doing and why.
