ITS has a significant hardware upgrade of our central disk infrastructure scheduled before the end of term. The first work is scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 29 from 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m. The remainder of the work will take place on Sunday, December 6 from 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m.
Services that take advantage of our central disk infrastructure will be affected by these upgrades and access to many commonly used resources such as OWL, PeopleSoft, Convergence Webmail, Cascade and the Western Home page will not be available during one or both of these maintenance periods.
A series of targeted and specific communications will be occurring over the next several days leading up to this change to notify various user groups of these changes and to minimize disruption as much as possible.
