Spring Maintenance May 20 to May 22

Twice per year, once in May and once in December, IT@Sam reserves a weekend after graduation to perform large scale maintenance to our servers and data center. This maintenance is different as it normally involves all or most servers rather than one or two systems. May 20 through May 22 is slated to be a maintenance weekend. Please expect intermittent service interruptions from 6pm on May 20 to 6pm on May 22. Each interruption should be short if noticed.

Services that will be interrupted include but are not limited to:

  • Banner – All Modules
  • My Sam
  • E-Mail
  • DARS
  • Milestone
  • University website
  • Terminal Servers (remote.shsu.edu)
  • Library Databases
  • Blackboard
  • Physics Cluster
  • Listservs
  • SamWeb
  • Surveys (Limesurvey system)
Again, these outages are only intermittent. These services should not be unavailable for the entire weekend.
