Summer 2012 IT Maintenance Window
This year’s IT Maintenance Window will be during the period Tuesday, August 7 through Sunday, August 19. Maintenance on IT systems will take place during this time.
To minimize the impact of systems maintenance on the community's work, whenever possible maintenance on IT systems is scheduled during regular maintenance periods. The regular maintenance schedule for IT services is weekly on Sunday mornings from 12:01 a.m. - 7 a.m., and twice annually, typically each winter in the week between Christmas and New Year's and each summer in the week between the end of the second summer session and Law School orientation.
This year's summer IT maintenance window will take place beginning on August 7 through August 19. Scheduled maintenance on IT systems will take place during this time. While most systems will be up most of the time during this period, and University IT Services will make every effort to give advance notification whenever specific systems are scheduled to be off line, unanticipated interruptions to services may occur while this work is being performed. Please plan your work accordingly.
