On Saturday, April 22, the 1800 Grant building will experience a power outage to perform transformer repair. The power outage for the building means that technology systems located at 1800 Grant will also experience an outage, impacting System Administration employees.
To protect our servers, printers, phone system, applications and other technologies, UIS is proactively shutting down 1800 Grant systems prior to the power outage. Beginning at 6 a.m. on Saturday, April 22, UIS will power down all technology systems. By proactively bringing the systems down using their normal shut down processes, we avoid the possibility of corrupted software or damaged hardware. Systems will be unavailable from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday to ensure that all systems power down and come back up properly.
Here is what System Administration users will experience during this outage.
To minimize the potential of power spikes upon power up, UIS is asking that 1800 Grant employees turn off all plugged-in appliances and computing devices. This includes lamps, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors, desktop printers and docking stations (for most users, this will involve turning off the surge protector).
Thank you for your support during this important maintenance. Please contact the UIS service desk for questions about protecting your technology devices during the building shutdown.
