Expected Dates of Network Down Time

Network Maintenance Days

Each year, the network team in Information Technology schedules time for upgrading and updating the network systems to make sure they are working as efficiently and securely as possible. This requires some network "down time." In an effort to avoid unexpected loss of connectivity, the network team publishes the scheduled maintenance days for the NNU network.

All maintenance days occur early on Sundays. Historically, these are the hours when the least activity occurs on the network.

Network maintenance day reminders are sent out via Message Board the week before they are scheduled so you will be aware of them.

Below are the expected maintenance days for the 2014-2015 academic year. Bear in mind that on these maintenance days, network connections and associated systems may be intermittent or non-existent between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. This includes internet, email, phone systems, and other peripheral systems reliant upon the network.

If you know of a potential conflict with a scheduled maintenance day as listed here, please contact the Office of Information Technology, 467-8951. If you experience connectivity issues after a maintenance day, please contact the TMR Help Desk by logging on at help.nnu.edu to create a help ticket, or call 467-8111.

*Most maintenance will be behind the scenes and very early in the morning to minimize network disruptions. Additional work may be scheduled on January 5.
