ITS Scheduled Maintenance: Weekend of August 6-9


As part of our preapproved scheduled maintenance weekends, from August 6 (noon) – August 9 (8 a.m.), ITS will be performing maintenance work on various campus systems. These maintenance windows allow ITS the opportunity to patch and upgrade UNCW systems, which are 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 time frames, all systems and services are subject to intermittent interruptions due to patching and reboots.
  • Throughout the weekend, campus buildings will have a brief network outage as their network infrastructure is updated.
  • OCI/Banner will be unavailable on August 7 from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.
  • A new network certificate will be added that may require you to accept a new certificate (if prompted) on your personal devices.
  • Canvas and UNCW email will not be impacted during this time.

Thank you for your patience.
