Blackboard Learn Downtime and ITS Maintenance Weekend: March 9, 10 – 13

Friday, March 03, 2017

Blackboard Learn will be offline for an upgrade on March 9th, 5 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.

ITS is granted pre-approved scheduled downtimes to perform maintenance work on the campus networks and systems. These downtimes are scheduled in advance to minimize impact to the campus and allow everyone to plan accordingly. This quarter's scheduled downtime is March 10 – 13, from 5 p.m. on Friday through 8 a.m. on Monday. Please note the following details:

  • On March 10, from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m ITS will perform required upgrades on network equipment which will temporarily remove network access to all UNCW Buildings. We anticipate each building being offline for no longer than 30 minutes during this period.
  • BANNER will be upgraded once that work is complete, and over the weekend.
  • During this timeframe, all systems and services are subject to intermittent interruptions due to patching and reboots.

Our goal is to complete all upgrades, patches and other maintenance as quickly as possible. You may view our maintenance schedule and details about availability of systems here.
