ITS Scheduled Maintenance Weekend is August 3 – 6

July, 2018


As part of our preapproved scheduled maintenance weekends, from August 3 (12 p.m.) – August 6 (8 a.m.), ITS will be performing maintenance work on various campus systems. These maintenance weekends allow ITS the opportunity to patch and upgrade UNCW systems, which is required to keep our systems and data secure and highly available. Maintenance weekends are scheduled in advance to minimize impact to the campus and allow everyone to plan accordingly.

How this affects you:

  • During this timeframe, all systems and services are subject to intermittent interruptions due to patching and reboots.
  • Blackboard Learn will be down from August 2 – 5
    As part of the ITS maintenance weekend Blackboard Learn will be down for an extended period during the approved August maintenance window. This downtime is required by ITS to move course content data to our new storage infrastructure. Due to the large volume of content data, extended time is needed. Blackboard Learn will be unavailable from Thursday, August 2, at noon through Sunday, August 5, at 6 p.m. We appreciate your patience while we accomplish this task. If you have any questions, please contact the TAC at 910.962.4357.
