On Wednesday, May 21st ITS will be performing extensive work on the IC web infrastructure which will result in a 2-3 hour downtime of websites and web services starting at 6:00 AM.

The main IC website, as well as myHome, myIthaca, and HomerConnect will all be unavailable during the downtime. While the normal IC website content will not be available, people who attempt to access www.ithaca.edu will be re-directed to a temporary web page that will provide direct links to the following major services:

  • Outlook email and calendar
  • The ACE page (access to HomerAdmin, Parnassus, Argus and Advance)
  • Sakai

All other Web services will be unavailable. We'll make every effort to have the work completed by 8:00 AM, but if complications arise the downtime may extend to as late as 9:00 AM.

Note that myHome is set as the default browser Web page on many campus computers, and will display a "page not found" message during the downtime.
