Outage Description

On Monday, November 30, 2009, Internet service on the St. Paul Campus will experience up to a five- to ten-minute outage as each of several network switches on campus receive an upgrade.

University Services

* Internet and wireless

CFANS Services

* None

Process

Starting at 5:00 AM, NTS engineers will upgrade the Internetwork Operating System (IOS) on several network switches on campus (PSB-CN-01, GrnH-CN-01, BioSci-CN-01, BioAgEng-CN-01, TelecomB-BN-01 and InfoTech-BN-01). The outage area includes the St. Paul campus and Como area.

Explanation

Cisco has announced a serious bug/problem with the IOS that we are currently running, and so the upgrade is needed to resolve possible issues.
