On Wednesday February 13th, Network Services from campus will be upgrading the network connections. The upgrades will increase our speed and throughput between the various network switch stacks in the main SVM building along with the connection going in and out of the building.
The upgrade will start at 6am this Wednesday morning (2/13/19) and is scheduled to be completed by 8am. Network services do not expect it to actually take the full 2 hours but scheduled in some extra time just in case some unforeseen problem crop up.
As Network Services makes the cutover on each of our network switches, there is expected to be a 30 second to 3 minute service interruption per switch. During this time frame, you may lose your wireless, VoIP phone, and/or computer connection. Access to our all our various servers (Vetstar, Print, File Servers, etc…) will be effected.
Everything should re-connect once the upgrade is complete. If you are having trouble with your connection after the upgrade please restart your computer/device to re-establish your connection.
If you have troubles with your network connection after the upgrade, please let us know ASAP.
