Significant System Maintenance Outage


The Office of Technology Services (OTS) is planning a full network outage late in the afternoon on Friday January 4th. Starting at 3 PM, MyUB and all related PeopleSoft services supporting admissions, financial aid, business office, records and registration, advising, human resources and finance will be shut down. Starting at 5 PM, OTS is planning a full network outage. The operations of general campus services such as the wired network, wireless network, telephones, Internet access and all shared drives (M, R, S, T) will not be impacted until 5 PM. After that time, all of these services should be expected to be unavailable. This activity is very important as it permits OTS time to perform critical maintenance to our network equipment. This schedule was established so as to minimally impact the campus. Off campus access to email and Sakai will not be affected by the scheduled maintenance. The outage will run for 7 hours (3:00pm to 10:00pm). Based on the university calendar, this date is the least impactful to the community. We ask that managers plan ahead and work with employees who are active PeopleSoft users to identify work that can be performed during the 3-5 PM portion of this outage.  Another general broadcast email message will be sent in January announcing this outage. During this outage, our backup website at UMES will be activated. Again, here is the timeline for when services will be shut down:


  • 3 PM – All PeopleSoft services will be shutdown

  • 5 PM – The wired and wireless networks will be shutdown impacting all other network-based services
