ITS Scheduled Maintenance March 7 and Weekend of March 13 – 16

March, 2020

As part of our preapproved scheduled maintenance weekends, from March 13 (5 p.m.) – March 16 (8 a.m.), ITS will be performing maintenance work on various campus systems. ITS also will be performing maintenance on March 7. These maintenance windows allow ITS the opportunity to patch and upgrade UNCW systems, which is required to keep our systems and data secure and highly available. Maintenance windows are scheduled in advance to minimize impact to the campus and allow everyone to plan accordingly.

How this affects you:

  • During these timeframes, all systems and services are subject to intermittent interruptions due to patching and reboots.
  • Network impacts:
    • The UNCW wired network will experience brief periods of interruption on March 7 (1 p.m. to 7 p.m.) and on March 13 (5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.).
    • The UNCW wireless network will experience brief periods of interruption on March 14 (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.).
  • System impacts:
    • Banner and DegreeWorks will experience some interruptions from March 13 (5 p.m.) – March 16 (8 a.m.).
    • UNCW Email and Canvas will remain available throughout; there will be no updates to course enrollments during this time.
