Border Firewall Migration

Scheduled Maintenance: 8:00 AM – 12:00 noon Saturday, July 25th
Services Impacted: VPN, Portal, etc.

On Saturday, July 25th, between 8:00 AM and 12:00 noon, the campus network will migrate to new border firewall platforms. These new systems bring significant capacity increases to the campus (particularly for GlobalProtect VPN), as well as new security features to better protect out systems and services.

During this transition, all campus Internet connectivity will see interruption. Downtime will be kept to a minimum, but significant outages may occur if unexpected problems arise during the migration. All campus-based services, including VPN, Portal, remote desktop access will be unreachable from off-campus.

Many campus systems and services are no longer housed on-campus, and will not experience downtime due to this work, including the campus web, Learn, CMS, email, and any other cloud-based services.
