This is a notification of upcoming scheduled hardware or software maintenance:
Sun Oct 22 2017 at 08:00AM ADT | Wireless Network | A 30 minute wireless outage is needed to upgrade network equipment during this 8 am - 9 am maintenance window. The complete maintenance window time is allocated in case of any unforeseen problems that may occur.
This outage will affect all wireless services for Dalhousie's Agricultural and Halifax campuses.
Wed Oct 25 2017 at 10:00AM ADT | General IT Services | UNB is doing some final cutovers to complete the upgrades to the NBREN telecom infrastructure that will cause two outages on Wednesday October 25th.
Each cutover should take about 5 minutes with the start time for the FRED-MNCT link moving at 10:00 am followed by the cutover for the MRMCH-SJ link at 10:15 am.
I've booked our rooms at the Miramichi Hospital site from 9:00am until 11:00am for service so there should be plenty of time for the work to be completed without impacting our program.
The FRED-MNCT link is part of our secondary light path so there should be no impact on our operations unless there happens to be a failure on the primary path (SJ-MNCT) at the same time.If there are any questions or concerns please contact me.

Sun Nov 5 2017 at 02:00AM AST | General IT Services | One of our Internet Service Providers (ISP) has scheduled a 5-minute outage during a 2:00am - 6:00am maintenance window for upgrading. This should not be service-affecting as another ISP will carry Internet traffic during this outage.
