Important system announcements from ITS
Wednesday, December 2, 2009
Information Technology Services has a "Fix-It Fridays" (FIF) weekly window of time -- from 4-8pm on Fridays (2-6pm during summer hours) -- to perform necessary maintenance on computers and network systems. During this time, important production systems (including e-mail, file servers, Parnassus, Homer and others) and/or network communications may be unavailable. Whenever possible, system maintenance is performed during the FIF window.
ITS will post an announcement in the "System Alerts" section of the ITS home page by noon on Wednesday of each week listing those systems and services that will be down during the upcoming FIF window.
Note that FIF maintenance does not completely eliminate the need for other system down times. More complex maintenance or emergency actions required to maintain the function or security of critical systems may extend beyond, or fall outside of, the normal FIF window.
If you would like e-mail notification of all planned system outages and other important system status information, please subscribe to our Helpdesk-Alert e-mail list at https://web2.ithaca.edu/passwords/.
