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 www.med.unc.edu
4. Access to WebCIS
The restart will take 15 minutes to complete. ITS and OIS technicians will be onsite and monitoring the effort.
