Limited IT during the weekend of 14 and 15 November

AU’s IT systems and other services will be subject to a certain amount of disruption at various points during the weekend of 14 and 15 November 2020

AU IT and AU Finance and Estates Projects and Development will carry out a planned service window from Saturday 14 November at 00:01 to Sunday 15 November at 23:59. Necessary updates to systems, etc. will be carried out to ensure students and employees at AU that IT, telefony, electricity etc. operate with the greatest possible degree of functionality, stability, and security.

You will be able to use AV equipment locally in lecture theatres/classrooms throughout the weekend, but of course ONLY if AU is open again that weekend*. You will be able to work locally on your computer –i.e. without being connected to central IT systems, shared drives, the video centre, AU’s network and internet through AU.

Overall timeline for the service window:

Saturday between 05:00 and 23.00 at the latest, there will be periodic disruptions to several local switches, data centre switches, files (Isilon) and STADS (all weekend) due to system updates and replacements.

Sunday between 08:00 and 22:00 at the latest, there will be periodic disruptions to STADS, EDDI, PostAU, EG Bolig, GitLab (several named Linux servers), video conferencing, IDM, financial and BI systems, the integration platform (several systems including mit.au.dk), as well as the AU website complex due to system updates.

From 29 October, a detailed service window schedule will be available at serviceinfo.au.dk. Here you’ll also find information on the next service window, as well as next year’s planned service windows.
