[downtime] CS Network Maintenance, Wednesday, October 13, 2021,

Who is affected:
Users of CS Department Network Services

What is happening:
The CS Department’s network uplink to OIT’s network (and onward to the

Library and New South buildings, providing more redundancy than the
original design which uplinked the department only through Lewis Library
(and 87 Prospect prior to that).

This is the second step in a multi-step process of reconfiguring this

We will post updates to the status page: http://www.csstaff.org
as necessary.

is appreciated.
