OIT will be doing a much needed storage switch replacement during our regular maintenance window on Thursday, May 23 from 2:00AM to 6:00AM.  The maintenance will be disruptive in nature and will affect most, if not all, servers (physical/virtual) and services that OIT manages. 

Critical services such as DNS, DHCP, SSO, AD as well as cloud based services such as TeamDynamix, Workday and Canvas will be online.  OIT will update this post when maintenance is complete or should any issues arise during this time.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
