Maintenance on Core School of Medicine Network

ITS and OIS will be performing maintenance on the core of the School of Medicine Network on Wednesday, Sept. 14 beginning at 6 a.m. The work will require a reboot of the central router which will cause a network outage of 15 minutes.

ITS and OIS will be upgrading a component in the core SoM network router known as el-medico.  The el-medico router controls all network flow within the School of Medicine and acts as a gateway to the UNC Hospitals network.  The component upgrade will require el-medico to be restarted which  will interrupt network traffic within the School of Medicine including:

1.       Access to UNC Campus , UNC Hospitals, and Internet to/from School of Medicine

2.       Access to central resources including DHCP, Sakai, and UNC School of Medicine file servers

3.       School of Medicine access to sites hosted on

4.       Access to WebCIS

The restart will take 15 minutes to complete.  ITS and OIS technicians will be onsite and monitoring the effort.
