Network Maintenance Schedule

To keep our systems up and running, it is necessary to apply patches, install upgrades, and perform equipment maintenance. We schedule one or two Thursday nights a month, starting at 10 pm, to do most of this work. Other Thursday nights may be used if the work cannot wait. All systems should be functioning by 6 am Friday morning, if not earlier.

However, if a vital network system is not working well, we may need to take it out of service to repair it outside of our regular time. We will let you know of planned system work and status via announcements on the MyFSU login page, in FerrisConnect, on MyTechSupport News, and/or through email.

In addition, Banner Services are usually unavailable at the end of the month for processing of business records. Please see this page for more information.

**After reviewing network usage, we found that Thursday nights, from 10 pm to 6 am, are low usage times. In addition, the technicians doing the work will be able to contact our vendors during their standard business hours the next day if needed.
